“Rugs are typically adorned with sacred gardens and oases, and can be moved around the home. This rug stayed put, quietly participating in years of familial abuse. This installation is about covering and exposing, trauma, and bearing witness. My memories are permanently etched, so the soft fabric is represented in hand-carved scars on discarded wood flooring.”
Okay, we have to do this! Dr. Jessica Wade, a London-based physicist, wrote 1600 (!!!) Wikipedia biographies for unrecognized female scientists…. sooooo, I’m sending out this challenge to everyone today, because on Saturdays this newsletter reaches almost 20,000 of you. If we each write one — just one — Wikipedia biography on our favorite female artist… WOW 20,000 new entries documenting women, past and present, who deserve recognition! Now that would be something. Just go to Wikipedia and use the search field at the top of the page to look for the artist you want to write about. If they don’t have a bio already, you’ll be asked if you want to “create a draft and submit it for review”… click on that!
