Pharrell has been recently selected to be the 2015 artist-in-residence by New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Pharrell will be leading a panel that will provide students and faculty an inside look into this creative process through an in-depth discussion about his many ventures including music and fashion.
Allyson Green, the dean of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts went on to say:
“We are thrilled to welcome Pharrell Williams as our artist in residence for the 50th anniversary year of the Tisch School of the Arts. Pharrell is just the kind of artist and entrepreneur that many of our students aspire to become. He is remarkably gifted, and he graciously uses his talent for the good of others....Our students and faculty will have the unique opportunity to be in conversation with an artist whose work is an inspiration and widespread. Pharrell has demonstrated a commitment to education in communities across the country. He’s dedicated to raising awareness to climate change, and he has taken ‘happiness’ from the stage and screen to people around the world through his work with the United Nations."
The talk will be hosted by NYU professor and NPR radio Host Jason King on October 26 at 7 p.m. at New York City's Town Hall and will only be open to NYU faculty and students, however a live stream of the event will be on NPR.org/Music.
