As I've been thinking lots these days about collage, prints and mixed-media, I was intrigued by Zarina Hasmi's work I discovered by chance at this Chelsea gallery. Born a Muslim in India over 60 years ago, Zarina is now based in NYC. The exhibit continues through 7/31 @ 531 W, 24th Street.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
