Pharrell Named Artist-in-Residence at New York University
One of the busiest men in show business adds another job title to his resume. Pharrell has been named the Artist-in-Residence at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The superstar artist will join NYU professor Jason King for a conversation about his work, career and creativity on Oct. 26 at 7:00 P.M. at New York City's Town Hall. The event will be posted on NPR's website for those who cannot attend.
“We are thrilled to welcome Pharrell Williams as our artist in residence for the 50th anniversary year of the Tisch School of the Arts,” said Allyson Green, the dean of Tisch School of the Arts, via a press release. “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."
