City Art Lab Exhibition

The final exhibition of teen artwork from this spring’s City Art Lab drew crowds of over 150 family, friends, educators, and fans to Azucarar Gallery in Harlem to celebrate the work of a talented group of young artists. The exhibition was curated and installed by the graduate students in City College’s Art Education program.  Not a bad way to finish up the semester.

Siyazama Book Launch

Almost ten years ago I stumbled over my broken Zulu through a series of interviews with an incredible group of artists from the Siyazama Project–a craft/economic development project focusing on HIV/AIDS education with women in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. After many years of dreaming about it, the book that Kate Wells, Marsha MacDowell, Kurt Dewhurst, and I worked so hard on is finally here.
