We recently had the pleasure of placing “Queen” by DELITA MARTIN in The Mercantile Hotel in downtown New Orleans. This unique portrait of a young girl with big dreams was created using layering of gelatin printing, relief, hand stitching, fabric, decorative papers and other media to create this 54 x 80” collage. It is art that reflects the community so STOP BY the lobby of the hotel the next time you are in town. #communityart #artinlittleknownplaces

We are happy to see Elizabeth Catlett Residence Hall, named after distinguished alumna Elizabeth Catlett, who lived off-campus because the school did not permit blacks to live in the dorms. Despite the commute, Catlett was among three UI students to earn the first Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in the United States in 1940. She also was the first African-American woman to receive an MFA. While at UI, her roommate was novelist and poet, Margaret Walker and she studied with American artist, Grant Wood.
