Artist, Kah Yangni, commissioned for virtual art installation at VCC 2021
BROCKPORT, N.Y. — Kah Yangni, a Philadelphia-based illustrator and muralist, has been commissioned to create a virtual art installation for the 2021 Virtual Coaches’ Caucus. The installation is meant to reflect the dynamic nature of the upcoming event and inspire attendees with a work of art centered on the sport of field hockey.
“Field hockey is an art, so we are excited to elevate the intrinsic beauty of the game with Kah’s talent,” remarked first vice-president, Chrissy Summers. “Great visual art evokes a feeling in the viewer and after becoming familiar with Kah’s work, I feel confident they will be able to convey the joy of our game. As we come together to problem solve and grow as a community at the VCC, I look forward to the artwork inspiring all of us. I hope their creation starts a conversation about the power of creative, outside-the-box thinking.”
Yangni’s art will uniquely brand the VCC space and the forthcoming illustration will appear on the NFHCA’s digital platforms and may feature on other mediums as well.
Kah Yangni is a self-taught illustrator and muralist living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They make heartfelt art about justice, queerness, femme life, and joy.
