Yesterday was the end of an era, the end of the annual Zoe Strauss I-95 shows. Unfortunately, I was never able to attend one; and besides being a fan of her work, I am also a fan of how she works. These outdoor shows which spanned a period of ten years were not only an ingenious way of promoting herself, it was also a direct way of giving back to the community which helped inspire her. Of course, she had no way of knowing where it would one day lead, but she opted to share from the get go, instead of someday letting it trickle on down should she ever reach that mythological strata of articstic success. And if you know anything about her work, you know that she'll continue to share wherever and however she continues to create.
