Just got back from Chicago where I was visiting
with Carlos Tortolero, executive director of the Mexican Center for Fine Arts.
I'm sorry I missed the evening with Ms. Nunn. I'd like to meet the woman who,
like you, was at the center of the storm.
I hope you're doing well. I think of you and
your wonderful work often, and have mentioned the Santa Fe episode to other
artists, historians and arts administrators. I know that it was a terrible
and difficult time for you, but it has generated a much needed discussion
in the community. It's no longer a matter of keeping silent. You had a great
group of women and men writing important things about what happened. I have
a great admiration for them, and you, for hanging in there.
I hope the Centro's letter of support from the
Board of Trustees helped. We followed the proceedings closely and have redoubled
our efforts to make the Centro a welcoming place for all.
Good luck. I look forward to seeing you in Los
Angeles next time I'm in the neighborhood.
At its best, the sensation of (making art) is that of any unmerited grace. It is handed to you, but only if you look for it. You search, you break your heart, your back, your brain, and then--and only then--it is handed to you." Annie Dillard , from "The Writing Life"

Alma, Thank you for suggesting I contact Joyce
Ice at the museum in Santa Fe. I drove over there last week, met with Joyce
and Tey Nunn, showed them the segment we did for KERA. They loved it...and
want a copy for the archives. The museum is wonderful, and your artwork looks
so perfect hanging there... a very powerful expression of you and your uniqueness.
I gave KERA your address and they are supposed to send a copy to you. I'd
appreciate it if you'd let me know when you receive it....and if you don't....
