Pamela Boll, co-executive producer of Academy award winning documentary Born Into Brothels, sheds light on five artists’ struggle to find balance between being a mother and spending time in the studio. Dr. Leslie King-Hammond of MICA’s Center for Race and Culture facilitates a panel discussion with fellow ‘mommy artists’ Ellen Burchenal, Rain Pryor, Edna Emmet, and Najwa Al-Amin. Sponsored by Robbye and Kevin Apperson.
An exploration of women navigating the sometimes contentious societal line that separates mother from artist, Boll’s documentary follows five women—New Mexico-based sculptor Maye Torres, Ohio-based sculptor Janis Wunderlich, Massachusetts-based painter Camille Musser, Hawaii-based artist Mayumi Oda, and Williams—who have, to varying degrees, successfully navigated the path of being both an artist and a mother in a cultural climate that has often asked women to choose one over the other.
