Prayer for the Maasai Warrior...8 and 1/2 ' by 5 ' ...contemporary funerary art quilt destined to live and preside over the students in the John and Christine Warner Library at Ohio State University here in Newark! I am so blessed.
I am so blessed. The opening went so well with many good wishes from such dear friends and patrons of the Arts here in Licking county. I am an artist who will now have a major work in the John and Christine Warner Library at Ohio State University here in Newark. A local artist who lives and loves our community, a paid artist for their work in a public Living university library designed and built to serve the needs of the students and faculty. Comfortable couches and numerous fireplaces to warm the spirit on a cold winter's eve; the most up-to-date computer services, resources and even a healthy food counter and gourmet coffee shop for those late night study sessions. I have a legacy open to the present community and future generations for years to come. I will be gone but my sacred marks will guard and protect my dream for a diverse community. We are all tired and had a great turn out despite the Memorial Day weekend with many families out of town for reunions and family gatherings. I will write more tomorrow when I am more coherent. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
