“Fury”

Though there has been an awful lot lately that makes me so angry that I feel as if my hair is on fire and my head is going to explode, I actually began this self-portrait called “Fury” years ago. I was at a livestream event for TED 2018 where I saw Tracee Ellis Ross speak […]

Disarming Exhibit Opens

Today we mark an anniversary. Twenty years ago, two teenagers went on a shooting spree at Columbine High School, killing 13 others before shooting themselves.
