Sedrick Huckaby is a painter who draws inspiration from his African-American roots, assigning new meaning and significance to his family history by recontextualizing artifacts and heirlooms such as quilts in his artwork. His works are held in renowned collections such as the African American Museum, Dallas, Texas; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts; Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York. He received an MFA from Yale (1999), a BFA from Boston University (1997) and he was a 2008 Guggenheim Fellow. He is currently assistant professor at the University of Texas at Arlington.

During his residency Sedrick Huckaby worked with Master Printer Brian Garner and Printmaking students to produce a fine art limited-edition lithograph titled American Dad.

The collaboration was made possible by Art Education / Art History, Core Drawing, Interdisciplinary Art and Design Studies (IADS), Printmaking, and the Gallery Visiting Artist and Scholar Committee (GVASC).
