Rikiesha Metzger

Rikiesha Metzger is a multifaceted, interdisciplinary International Community Artist-Philosopher who explores themes related to race, identity, and ideas about the spiritual. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, her experience as a military child ignited her interest in diverse cultures. Now, as an artist-philosopher, she travels extensively, collaborating with people from a wide range of backgrounds.

Her academic background includes bachelor’s degrees from NC A&T State University and Morgan State University, a master’s from Maryland Institute College of Art, and a PhD from the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts, which speak to her dedication as a lifelong learner in the arts and education.

Built upon a strong spiritual foundation, her work highlights how art can be used as a tool to help interpret the language of the spirit. Her work speaks to the idea of freedom in a way that allows one to freely express the spiritual in any form they choose, whether it be God, the divine, the creator, the universe, or anything else that connects individuals to higher dimensions of spiritual consciousness. Drawing inspiration from her children, and spiritual influences that remain unseen but felt, her works include performance, wire, paper cut, sculpture, digital media, and quilting.
