MARN Mentors is: “MARNmentors pairs an established and emerging artist in a year long mentorship. Within these exchanges, mentors help mentees develop project goals and overcome personal barriers that the mentee may identify. The hope is to empower and give accountability to the partnership so that 1) the mentor feels free to give aesthetic, moral and concrete support based on their experience; and 2) the mentee is able to hold themselves accountable to their own goals.”
The following works have been my contribution to the Mentor / Mentee program. Thank you to my mentor Pamela Anderson for her inspiration and support. The FINAL SHOW is coming up on May 29th 6 to 9pm (location TBD).
