Pharrell Williams has been named NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts artist in residence. Williams’s first event as artist in residence will be an in-depth conversation with NYU professor Jason King on Oct. 26.
“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,” said Allyson Green, dean of the Tisch School of the Arts, in a statement. “Our students and faculty will have the unique opportunity to be in conversation with an artist whose work is an inspiration and widespread.”
Additional events of Williams’s residence will be announced at a later date.
