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!

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.

  1. You’re welcome! Lovely to hear from you and thank you for your kind words. It always feels good to be appreciated! It is a big project but a fulfilling one; there are so many incredible women artists here in Los Angeles and it has been a joy to discover artists that were under my radar and also to be able to delve deeper and rediscover artists I am familiar with. The level of talent is breathtaking, you included! Cheers!
