Tracy Spencer Stonestreet works primarily with objects of domesticity to create art that explores southern identity. She completed her Masters in Fine Arts in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was a da Vinci scholar at North Carolina State University where she studied History and Art & Design. From 2011 to 2015, Tracy was an assistant professor of Fine Art at Hampton University, teaching drawing, painting, printmaking, and humanities. She served as the guest editor for the International Review of African American Art from 2014 to 2016. Tracy currently is a PhD student at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she is researching performance as a mode of artistic production. She is particularly interested in how relics of these performances are subsequently displayed in exhibitions as independent art objects. Tracy has presented her research at the Southeastern College Art Conference and the Southern Humanities Conference.
