UNT Visiting Artist Shira Richter featured at DMA

Shira Richter will be a visiting artist at UNT October 6-8, 2014. She will be presenting to the Fibers and Core Design classes in addition to her presentation to the Jewish Studies Department.

Hot Potato Called Mother

In connection with the installation The Mother Load, the DMA welcomes Israeli artist Shira Richter. Using such issues as feminism, politics, anthropology, and popular culture, Richter's work addresses the fundamental roles that motherhood and art play in our lives. The Mother Load is an international collaborative project on view in the Center for Creative Connections that engages with women who lead the creative life of an artist while being a mother.
