Artists at the Opening of "Blind Dates" on November 18To create "Blind Dates," co-curators Defne Ayas and Neery Melkonian paired artists and non-artists from areas once controlled by the Ottomans, including what is now modern-day Turkey and Armenia, to go on “blind dates.” 

The “match-making” created encounters between distanced neighbors and their estranged cultures; the exhibition is based on collaborations stemming from these encounters with “otherness.”

For more on the project, please visit the Pratt Manhattan Gallery or www.blinddatesproject.org.

I have requested previously numerous times for consideration of my work as an alumnus of both Pratt Institue (where is was awarded a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant for Sculpture upon receiving my MFA 9n 1968) and Sarah Lawrence College, with no response. I have been working as a professional artist for over 30 years with shows in the U..S. and Europe.

My works are in major institutions, i.e. The Library of Congress; The Getty Center; MOMA, NYC; The Victoria & Albert Museum, and numerous others.

I would be happy to hear from the Alumna Department in this regard.

Thank you.
