Now Be Here: Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza #469
Feeling inspired after attending the historic event Now Be Here at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. My goal is to feature every artist that attended, one artist a day. Considering the number of artists that showed up, this will take me two years to complete. I am looking forward to getting to know the work of each and every artist!
Your inspiration for the day- Now Be Here edition: Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza
Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza is a Los Angeles-based artist and educator whose practice spans a range of materials and processes in her sculptures, objects, and drawings. Her cultural identity and immigrant experience instill objects with a particular outsider’s point of view that she both honors and subverts. She received an MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 1991, a BA from California State University, Los Angeles in 1989, and attended The Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design from 1984-85. She has received awards from the The Department of Cultural Affairs (C.O.L.A. and Los Angeles Artist Fellowship), Plugin Gallery, Art Matters, and The National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts. Maryrose is currently an Associate Professor at Pasadena City College.
