Visiting Artist Lecturer

1996    Heidelberg Project,    Detroit, Michigan
Exhibitions, etc.
As a child artist in the late '60s, I had some training at the Gallery 7 Collective in Detroit; and then
later, also with Charles McGee, in the underground studios at the Detroit Institute of Arts.  In the
early mid-70s, as a twelve yr. old street artist, I set up shop outside the D.I.A., selling poems and
sketches out front.  One day an uptight, hippie-hating suburbanite stopped on the steps of the
D.I.A., and turned to glare nastily back at me, snarling, "Get a job!"

Innocently mystified, I replied with youthful sincerity, "Lady, this
is my job."

At any rate, my little gig out front got my work into the D.I.A.  An administrator stopped and
bought a couple of my pieces, which were then included in an exhibition of Michigan artists, thus
making it possible for this little hippie artist to say that her first show was at a major art museum.
