Congratulations to Monica Haller. The photographer--and one of the artists responsible for the recent book Riley and His Story, Me and My Outrage, You and Us--has been named a 2010 Guggenheim Fellow. It's quite the honor. To quote the foundation's website, "The Fellowships are awarded to men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts."
You can meet Monica Haller and learn more about her creative process on Friday, May 28. Magers & Quinn is hosting a public conversation between Monica Haller and Wing Young Huie, at 7:30pm, at the Loft Literary Center (1011 Washington AVe S, Minneapolis.) The event is free and open to the public. Arrive early to ensure you can get a seat. Details are here.--David E
