In episode 73 of The Great Women Artists Podcast, Katy Hessel interviews one of the most trailblazing artists alive today, JORDAN CASTEEL !!!!!!! Born and raised in Denver and now based in New York City, Casteel is hailed for her portraits and landscapes imbued with expressivity and authenticity, gestural brushwork and bold swathes of colour, which capture the fleeting and very real moments of life, closeness, and honest relationships. Since receiving her BA from Agnes Scott College, Georgia for Studio Art in 2011, and her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale School of Art, 2014, the past seven years for Casteel have been monumental. In 2020, she presented a critically-acclaimed major solo exhibition titled “Within Reach,” at the New Museum, New York; and other recent institutional solo exhibitions include “Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze,” presented at both the Denver Art Museum, CO (2019), and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, CA (2019–20). In recent years, she has participated in exhibitions at institutional venues such as SF MoMA; Art Institute of Chicago; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Crystal Bridges; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; MoCA Los Angeles, CA (2018); The Studio Museum in Harlem, NY (2017 and 2016), where between 2015–16 she participated in their prestigious residency programme, among many others. Casteel's paintings have graced the front cover of American Vogue, Time Magazine, and in 2019 were blown up to 1,400 square foot for Manhattan's High Line. As of 2021, Casteel is also the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. But the reason why we are speaking with Jordan today, in London I might add, is because she has just unveiled one of the most hotly anticipated exhibitions of the year, and her first ever UK solo exhibition at Massimo De Carlo: “There is a Season”, a show focussing on the minutiae of daily interactions, conversations, and connections, which embraces the ebb and flow of lived experiences, articulated by the rhythmic tick of time, which I cannot wait to find out more about… FURTHER LINKS! https://www.massimodecarlo.com/exhibition/521/there-is-a-season http://www.jordancasteel.com/ https://caseykaplangallery.com/artists/casteel/ https://www.instagram.com/jordanmcasteel/?hl=en https://www.macfound.org/fellows/class-of-2021/jordan-casteel https://www.newmuseum.org/exhibitions/view/jordan-casteel-within-reach LISTEN NOW + ENJOY!!!

If you've ever wondered how some of these crazy, intricate designs on acoustic guitars are made, you're not alone. In this video you'll see how some of the greatest masters of inlay create beautiful inlay design! The artists selected this week are world-renowned inlay artists, working with everything from lacquer to mother of pearl to create incredible art right on the guitar. We'll be featuring the folks who have created some of Martin Guitar's stunning instruments, as well as the incredibly talented Simon Haycraft who works on Thompson Guitars. Whether you're just starting to play acoustic guitar or you've been playing for decades, I always love to show people that acoustic guitars can be incredible art pieces, whether their inlay work is subtle or over the top. You'll also have a chance to preview an incredible documentary called Dragons & Vines. Brought to you by the folks at the Museum of Instrument Making, this 3-part documentary is a must-see for anyone interested in guitar design or inlay work. Be sure to check it out on the Museum of Instrument Making's website or YouTube channel! In addition to discussing acoustic guitar inlay, you'll get to see how valuable playing the guitar for at least 10 minutes a day is, especially when dealing with this week's TAC Tuesday Guitar Lick Challenge. And, just to drive that concept home, you'll hear from a TAC Family member who has used the 10 minutes a day method to launch his guitar journey to new heights. Last but not least, you'll get your weekly dose of acoustic guitar news you can use! Featured this week are… New Norman Blake album titled "Day by Day".

Following her passion for art and math, Elizabeth Graziolo decided that getting into an engineering university was an excellent way to leave her house. She was a teenager that just immigrated to the US, but dealing with puberty and starting to build her future didn't seem much for her; in fact, it was one of her traits - she enjoyed challenging herself. She got into the Cooper Union's Architecture program, which she thought she'd use to get into The Albert Nerken School of Engineering, Cooper Union's largest engineering school. But after a semester of Architecture, she fell in love with it. The feeling was mutual; Elizabeth became an award-winning architect and built an outstanding career, which she is sharing with us today. Elizabeth Graziolo is the Founder and Principal of Yellow House Architects, PLLC. She is the recipient of the "City of Design Award," a distinction awarded by the Museum of The City of New York in 2018. Elizabeth is also a trustee of The Museum of the City of New York and The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science & Art and serves on the Delano & Aldrich/Emerson Fellowship Committee of the American Institute of Architects.In this episode, we explore Elizabeth's successful journey into a male-dominated industry. We talk about her mentors and what she learned after school when she started doing the real thing. We also go through her decision of leaving a great job in a great company where she had become a partner to start her own architecture company. Elizabeth also shares the projects she most enjoyed working on, her opinion on general contractors, and her advice for those interested in joining the construction industry.Some Questions I Ask:How did you get into architecture? And why architecture. Can you talk to us a bit about that? (3:23)You worked at Peter Pennoyer Architects for almost 18 years and you became a partner there. What made you decide to take a chance on yourself and go out on your own? (7:34)Can you talk to me about the favorite projects that you've worked on? (13:48)When you hear about general contractors, what comes to your mind? (20:27)In This Episode, You Will Learn:How Elizabeth ended up loving Architecture (4:11)A bit about the fun stuff Elizabeth learned that Architecture School doesn't teach (7:10)It is hard to leave a job, and when that job is outstanding, it is even more complicated (9:58)The future plans for Yellow House Architects (18:16)Resources:Yellow House Architects websiteYellow House Architects InstagramConnect with Elizabeth:LinkedInLet's Connect!LinkedInInstagram TwitterMPC Builders - WebsiteMPC Builders - Facebook See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Elizabeth Islands are a chain of small islands that extend about 16 miles to the southwest from the southern coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. There are seven major islands in the chain. Naushon Island is the largest at 7.4 square miles. Tarpaulin Cove, on the east side of the island, was a place where seamen traveling through Vineyard Sound often stopped for a meal or a night's stay at a tavern run for many years by Zaccheus Lumbert. Lumbert erected an early navigational light on the island in 1759. Tarpaulin Cove Lighthouse, Naushon Island, Massachusetts. Photo by Jeremy D'Entremont. In 1817, the federal government established a light station at Tarpaulin Cove with a rubblestone tower showing a fixed white light 71 feet above mean high water. A new 38-foot-tall brick tower was built in 1891. After the light was automated in 1941, the keeper's house and outbuildings fell into disrepair and were torn down in 1962. The lighthouse tower at Tarpaulin Cove is now maintained by the Cuttyhunk Historical Society. The Society was launched in 1978 and operates the Museum of the Elizabeth Islands on Cuttyhunk, the westernmost of the Elizabeth Islands. Naushon Island is also home to a herd of belted Galloway cows, who sometimes like to take a dip in the ocean. Photo by Jeremy D'Entremont. The light station on Cuttyhunk was demolished in 1947. (Collection of Jeremy D'Entremont) Paul Elias Also discussed in this episode is the lost lighthouse of Cuttyhunk, which was established in 1823. Paul Elias is a longtime summer resident and a trustee of Naushon Island. He's also a former board member of the Cuttyhunk Historical Society and the "point person" for Tarpaulin Cove Lighthouse.

The Vesterheim has 80 spinning wheels. Laurann Gilbertson says that they didn't really mean to have so many, but it seems that every woman who emigrated from Norway in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century came prepared to make the cloth she needed to run her household: the wool and linen krokbragd coverlets, linens for wearing and bedding, carefully embellished folk costume, and all the other textiles that a woman in a new country and generations after her would need to live comfortably. In time, she might switch to commercial cotton thread for her hardanger embroidery or stop spinning her own sheep's wool, but producing cloth was an important part of life, so it's best to be prepared. The spinning wheels are treasures (but the museum probably won't accept any more). The museum also has rugs, coverlets, hand coverings, folk garments, knitwear (of course!), tapestries, and other Norwegian and Norwegian-American items from a Viking sword to Rosemaling chests to photographs and furnishings. Laurann shares the joys of working with, learning about, and caring for a museum's collections. as well as some of the difficult decisions that curators face. She offers expert advice on how to make the most of a museum—and how to make the most of your own family's treasures, museum-worthy or not. Vesterheim is one of many museums centered on a specific cultural or historic focus, but the elements of running a museum are shared across the field: collecting and preserving according to a policy, assisting in research for scholars, making the collection available to the public, and promoting education about the museum's area of interest. Vesterheim Museum (https://vesterheim.org/) is located in Decorah, Iowa.
Well-known early on for their signature blown glass Bags, the subsequent cast glass work of John Littleton and Kate Vogel provided a new outlet for complex contemplations, questions and reflections. In this dramatic departure from their lighthearted Bags, faces and hands are used in various poses and combinations to explore states of mind, relationships, and even spiritual themes. Cast arms with hands in amber glass hold a brilliant jewel-cut form, which seems to spread its glowing light to all that surrounds it. Use of multiple techniques by Littleton and Vogel reveals an intimate understanding of their medium, and the execution of each work reflects artists deserving of their place at the top of the contemporary glass movement. Not only visually stunning, their sculpture allows the viewer to create a narrative, each piece a captured moment in a story of the viewers' choosing. They state: “As we focus on each form, we see possibilities for the next, and our vocabulary of form and ideas expands. We bounce ideas back and forth, we build on each other's concepts, and we learn from each other's insights. Collaboration brings our individual sensibilities together to generate something neither of us would have made alone. “ Littleton and Vogel are nationally renowned American Studio Glass Movement artists who work and reside in Bakersville, North Carolina. Their creative partnership began in the mid-to-late 20th century, when they began collaborating on their first glass pieces in 1979 after meeting as art students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Creating sculptural blown and cast glass works and installations that speak to the importance of their relationships to one another, their family, and their community, Littleton and Vogel currently exhibit their works in Between Us: A Retrospective Exhibition of Work by John Littleton and Kate Vogel at the Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass in Neenah, Wisconsin. On view now through February 13, 2022, the exhibition is accompanied by a perfect bound 84-page publication with essays by Casey Eichhorn, exhibition curator, and Susie J. Silbert, Curator of Postwar and Contemporary Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass. “This retrospective exhibition highlights important works, milestones, and innovations in their shared careers,” says Casey Eichhorn, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions,” – all while tying their experiences and influences back to John's father, Harvey Littleton, an American glass artist, educator, and one of the founders of the American Studio Glass Movement.” Harvey Littleton, whose influential work will also be shown in the exhibition, is often referred to as the “Father of the Studio Glass Movement.” In his role as an educator, he initiated the first hot glass program offered by an America University at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and promoted the idea of glass as a course of study in university art departments in the United States. Littleton's students went on to become the dominant figures in the American Studio Glass Movement while broadening the study of glass art and university-level hot glass programs throughout the U.S. John Littleton states: “Harvey introduced glass as a medium for artists. The Toledo workshops were dad's idea. He had help from Norm Schuman and later Dominic Labino. The workshops wouldn't have happened without him. He certainly had help developing technique, but more than anyone else he saw the possibility of putting glass in the hands of artists. The industrial model was designers who worked on paper passing the design to the factory worker who had little expressive input. There were artist craftsmen and women who worked with glass individually, but dad pursued the idea of glass being available to art students. The early years were a time he pushed to get glass into universities to expand glass's creative and expressive potential. He saw the need for many artists working with glass for the growth of the field.” Littleton and Vogel's work has appeared in several group exhibitions including the Sculpture Objects and Functional Art (SOFA) in Chicago and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. Their glass works can also be seen in private and public collections in North America, Europe, and Asia. Locations include the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park in Little Rock, AR; the Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts in Switzerland; Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in Denmark; the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY; The Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA. Features on their work have appeared in various publications—such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, and CBS Sunday Morning. Littleton and Vogel state: “Choice, chance, circumstance, seductive qualities of the material…a little bit of all of the above. We stay with glass because it feels right. The process allows us to collaborate, start to finish. Glass is versatile, and we see endless possibilities in it and through it. In our work we strive to make something that is a personal expression of our thoughts and experiences.”
Biogeography is the distribution of life within and around landforms. In a large deep canyon, that distribution is influenced by the elevation and the aspect of a slope which also controls the sunlight received. We talk with Larry Stevens of the Museum of Northern Arizona about his decades long investigation of biogeography within the Grand Canyon. More than 70% of the species found in the Grand Canyon are genetically affected by the landform itself and many can live nowhere else.

Rachel Hurdley opens the window on an architectural feature which reveals a story of conflict, hierarchy, status and ventilation. The history of windows in our homes begins with simple openings, designed to let in some light and air but small enough to protect the occupants from intruders. Glass was rare and expensive so only the wealthiest could afford to show off their affluence with a display of glazed windows. But, as the technology of glass making developed, windows became larger and made a statement about sophistication and modernity. Rachel traces the history of the window from the arrow loops of Chepstow Castle to the massive plate glass windows of the 20th century and beyond. She visits Gloucester Cathedral to admire a stained glass window which was said to be the largest in the world when it was created and discovers how its design reinforced the medieval social order. Rachel also goes back to the 1590s to find out why Hardwick Hall was described as ‘More Glass Than Wall' and how its many windows were used to show off wealth and status. She discovers how department stores with their tempting window displays brought about social change and played a part in female liberation and she considers why windows suddenly got so much bigger in the early years of the 20th century. Along the way, Rachel hears from the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, about how his lockdown window provided poetic inspiration and she reflects on the central question of the window – are we inside looking out or outside looking in?

“I am freedom,” says Rahsaan Thomas in a recorded phone call from San Quentin State Prison, featured in a new performance by Flyaway Productions and Museum of the African Diaspora. "Meet Us Quickly with Your Mercy" combines first-person recordings with music and aerial choreography— with the goal of conveying the solidarity of Black and Jewish activism for racial justice and prison abolition. It's rooted in a four-year collaboration that comprised hundreds of letters, prison visits and monitored phone calls between artistic director Jo Kreiter and lead writer Thomas, who co-hosts and co-produces the Pulitzer Prize-nominated podcast “Ear Hustle” and who is currently incarcerated in San Quentin. "Meet Us Quickly with Your Mercy” will run through Oct. 17 and charge no admission fee. Kreiter and Thomas join us to discuss the show and its message.
Today - There will be two Oktoberfests next October. One in Leavenworth and another in Wenatchee. Why? Well, Leavenworth's annual Oktoberfest, as many know it, did not return this year and will not be back next year. Also, locked behind five doors, hidden in a dark container and wrapped in cellophane sits a 95-year-old artifact: Clyde Pangborn's sandwich. Yes. That is correct.

In 1992, Dove was named US Poet Laureate and served as Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress—a position she would later hold again as a Special Bicentennial Consultant in 1999. In addition to being the youngest individual and the first African American to hold the position of Poet Laureate, Rita Dove is the recipient of 28 honorary doctorates and numerous awards, some of which include: Poet Laureate of Virginia, the National Humanities Medal presented by President Bill Clinton, the National Medal of Arts presented by President Barack Obama, several lifetime achievement awards, and the Gold Medal in poetry from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Dove has published the poetry collections The Yellow House on the Corner (1980), Museum (1983), Thomas and Beulah (1986), Grace Notes (1989), Selected Poems (1993), Mother Love (1995), On the Bus with Rosa Parks (1999), American Smooth (2004), Sonata Mulattica (2009), Collected Poems: 1974-2004 (2016) which was a finalist for the National Book Award, and her most recent work, Playlist for the Apocalypse (2021). In addition to poetry, Dove has published a book of short stories, Fifth Sunday (1985), the novel Through the Ivory Gate (1992), and the play The Darker Face of the Earth (1994). Rita Dove is currently the Commonwealth Professor of English at the University of Virginia. When she's not writing timeless literary gems, Dove might be found thumbing through High Fashion Sewing Secrets and creating her own wearable works of art.
Sometimes living in New Orleans can make you want to tear your hair out. You can barely drive around the city for more than 10 minutes without hitting at least one suspension-threatening pothole. It only has to rain hard for 30 minutes and streets are flooding. At least once a year we're hit with a “Boil Water Advisory.” And the power goes out with alarming frequency because our electrical grid is apparently in a constant state of precariousness. If your observations of our engineering abilities stopped there, you'd be justified in concluding we're a bunch of inept losers. But, if you look just a little harder, and a little further east, you're going to get a different impression. A very different impression. Heading east on the I-10, after you pass the remnants of another piece of failed engineering, the long-abandoned Six Flags theme park, you pass an innocuous looking highway sign that says “NASA Michoud Assembly Facility.” If you took that exit, you'd find yourself at one of the largest manufacturing plants on Earth. There are over 43 acres of manufacturing space under one roof. You'll find 3,200 people working there. 1,200 of these people are directly involved in building a rocket. That rocket is called the Space Launch System. It's a part of a NASA program, called Artemis. When it's finished, this will be the most powerful rocket ever built. It's going to take astronauts to Mars. We can't fix the streets or keep the power on in New Orleans, but we can build a rocket to take astronauts to Mars. The current Director of the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility is Lonnie Dutreix III. If you raise your gaze off the potholed streets of New Orleans, you don't have to look as high as deep space to see some other impressive engineering, and architectural, achievements. For example, the new Higgins Hotel and Conference Center that's part of the impressive World War 2 Museum. Or, the Carondelet Street hospitality corridor, including the Ace Hotel. And then there's the St Vincent Hotel, and the 100,000 square foot co-working space at the CAC. All of these, and many other notable examples of new and renovated construction in New Orleans, are the projects of a construction company called Palmisano. Palmisano started out in construction in 1950, and it's been in business continuously since. Oh, and by the way, when you drive on a smooth section of New Orleans roadway and say “Thank God they fixed this street,” that's possibly the work of Palmisano's civil engineering division. The Market Leader at Palmisano is Nick Moldaner. It's not unusual for people who live in small towns to believe they're the center of the universe. You don't have to go very far to find the self-described “Strawberry Capital of the World” - Ponchatoula. Or the even more quaintly delusional, “Rice Capital of the World” – Crowley Louisiana. In New Orleans, we don't have a grandiose slogan to market ourselves with. If there's anything like it, it's “Laissez le bon temps roulez.” While it's an attractive part of our DNA not to take ourselves too seriously, it's also worthwhile celebrating the enormous achievements in business, engineering, and science in New Orleans. The folks at NASA Michoud in New Orleans East are taking us to another planet. And Palmisano is well into the third generation of building the city itself. It's worth noting once in a while that we have more to be proud of in New Orleans than our food and music. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom. You can see photos from this show by Astor Morgan at our website. For more lunchtime business and construction conversation, check out Wes Palmisano's visit to Out to Lunch.

Brooklyn is constantly changing. This episode takes a look at the changes on just one street in one neighborhood: Eighth Avenue in Sunset Park, which many call Brooklyn's Chinatown. In the early 1990s, BPL and the Museum of Chinese in America collected oral histories about Sunset Park. We dive back into that archive, with help from Professor Tarry Hum, urban planner and former Sunset Parker.
This week's episode is another riotous recording at the DWSC London residency at The Museum of Comedy! Joining Taylor, Catie and Hannah is the brilliant comedian Mary O'Connell who sets the crime-solving scene with a story of under 18s raving which will melt the coldest heart. We then dive into a true crime that starts off debating the role and efficiency of using a muff... much to everyone's delight. We then hear from an audience member who has been stewing on a wrongdoing for 25 years until she finally gets the closure she deserves.See the Drunk Women LIVE at their London residency - museumofcomedy.comFor their Christmas Shows in Manchester and London go to - leicestersquaretheatre.com / thelowry.comFor all the extras on Patreon go to - patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
I first met Neil deGrasse Tyson at a bug eating event at the Museum of Natural History when he was munching on a fried tarantula. You may remember Tyson as the host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. That was the continuation of a television series that originally starred Carl Sagan, another well-known astrophysicist. Tyson is also the Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York and he's written more than 17 books. The latest is called A Brief Welcome to the Universe. But when you're talking to Neil deGrasse Tyson, as you'll discover, nothing is brief. “Now What?” is produced with the help of Steve Zimmer, Annika Hoiem and Alex Wolfe. Audio production is by Nick Ciavatta.

Hey y'all. Good morning and evening to all my listeners. Not much new with me. Just overall working a lot and juggling many different projects in life, as all of us are. But enough about me. Let's get to this week's guest, the wonderful Nathalie Sánchez, an interdisciplinary artist, social justice arts educator, and arts advocate raised and rooted in Los Angeles. She graduated with her B.A. in Art History and Studio Arts with an emphasis in education from Loyola Marymount University and received her M.F.A. in Public Practice from Otis College of Art and Design. Nathalie has developed and led visual arts and museum education programs at ArtworxLA, Avenue 50 Studio, Fowler Museum at UCLA, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA), and P.S. ARTS. In 2016, Nathalie founded the Art Education + Social Justice Book Club as a direct response to the U.S. presidential election and in the hopes of cultivating a community of thought partners and change-makers in arts education. Currently, the Art Education + Social Justice Book Club has over 350 members worldwide and continues to grow. Nathalie and I talk about all these projects, along with how to marry art and community, having advocates, holding accountability, and making friends. Nathalie was a joy to talk to and I hope you can join her in the upcoming book club meetings. Until then, stay safe and healthy and I hope you enjoy this.Links Mentioned:Nathalie SánchezArt Education + Social Justice Book ClubBarbara CarrascoUnited Farm WorkersPatrick MartinezMacha SuzukiVincent Price Art MuseumFollow Seeing Color:Seeing Color WebsiteSubscribe on Apple PodcastsFacebookTwitterInstagram

Dave Bossert & Aljon Go discuss the latest James Bond box office returns, Disney+ Day, and pop-culture news. They also serve up the 2nd part of their interview with Bob Kurtz, founder of Kurtz & Friends Animation. Kurtz is a Peabody Award-winning animation director, writer, designer, and founder of Kurtz & Friends Animation has created/produced animated theatrical titles for most major studios including the Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios, MGM, Sony Entertainment, Columbia Tri-Star Picture Group, and Warner Brothers. Kurtz is the recipient of numerous awards, including an Emmy for the PBS special Roman City, the Peabody Award for the Lily Tomlin special Edith Ann's Christmas, the Annie Award for Lifetime Achievement, and over 250 international awards. His films are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, and the ASIFA Archive, Germany.

Bob Kurtz was born in Los Angeles, California, and graduated from the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts.) “My philosophy is fairly simple-I am a communicator. Therefore the message comes first, then the graphics. I want to stimulate, excite, scare or create laughter. I don't want a passive audience. I don't expect a captive audience. It is the film artist's obligation to reach out and touch that audience; to rediscover and share our common humanity. Follow the team!

When thinking about “fine art,” many minds immediately envision paintings by the likes of Monet or Van Gogh. But one artform – quilting – is finally being recognized as fine art, rather than just craft. African American quilters, in particular, are reclaiming the artform's history, after having been mischaracterized by scholars for decades. A new Museum of Fine Arts, Boston exhibition, “Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories” features over 300 years of American quilts, and other visual and tactile artworks. It especially focuses on works by an underrecognized diversity of artistic hands and minds from the 17th century to today. The exhibition opened on October 10th and runs through January 17th, 2022. GUESTS: Jennifer Swope, associate curator of textile and fashion arts at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and exhibition curator of the MFA's “Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories.” Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, author, curator, quilter, and founder of African American Quilt Guild of Los Angeles and Women of Color Quilters Network. Dr. Mazloomi's work “Strange Fruit II” is featured in the MFA's “Fabric of a Nation” exhibition. Gio Swaby, a Bahamian visual artist whose work centers on Black joy as a radical act of resistance. Her work “Love Letter 5” is featured in the MFA's “Fabric of a Nation” exhibition.
