A Great Artist is Gone - Ale-ha Ha-sholom

I wish I had the chance to meet her, but while Miriam Shapiro was making art in California I was still working in dance & theatre on the East Coast, Colorado, Milwaukee and transitioning to radio news.

Dancing as Fast as I Can - Shapiro 1984
The image above is what I most remember about her work.  And after looking at this again and looking at some of my work around the studio, you can safely say that she was a great influence on me as an artist.

Didn't hear about it through mainstream media, but through one of my art blogs.  Here's MORE from Hyperallergic.
