A leading figure in the feminist art movement, Harmony Hammond co-founded A.I.R., the first women's co-op gallery in NYC (1972). Occupying the space between painting and sculpture, her work introduces feminist and queer content into the world of abstraction.  Hammond's work has been honored by the NEA, Guggenheim, and Pollock-Krasner Foundations.  (http://art.msu.edu/content/2014-2015)

Day of the Dead Crafts

I had a blast team teaching Day of the Dead crafts with artist colleague, Shirley K. Bentsen!  We hosted three classes at SmittenDust Studio (smittendust.blogspot.com), November 1 and 2, to celebrate loved ones and friends.  I really enjoyed making skull pins and mini fiesta flags!

For a friend who loves flamingos!
