Local artist Pierre Sylvain recently painted a portrait of Abraham Adzenyah MA ’79, master drummer and adjunct professor of music, emeritus. The painting is hung inside the Abraham Adzenyah Rehearsal Hall at Wesleyan University. Adzenyah taught West African drumming and dance at Wesleyan for 46 years.
Sylvain first met Adzenyah 20 years ago, and painting his portrait gave them a chance to reconnect.
“The painting was truly inspired by him and the generous person he is. I felt his spirit coming out of my brush strokes,” Sylvain said.
