Athesia in the City

new-featured

from October 12-18th CITY [scanned courtesy of UR’s Rush Rhees Library]

Rebecca Rafferty’s October 12-18th CITY article Emerging Artists: Generating beauty from busy livesfront-cover-compressed includes a profile of Athesia Benjamin (SOTA, RIT, Professor at MCC).

You met Athesia several times during the Bernie Sanders campaign: on her appearance in a major campaign video and on her endorsement statement in the D & C.

And read Athesia’s sensitive essay on an experience with racial profiling.

Thanks, Rebecca, for drawing more attention to Athesia’s art.

In addition to Athesia’s sign displayed at a Ted Cruz rally at MCC, you also saw another of Athesia’s works, the unfinished “Fool’s Gold.” (below)
