Artists Statement: "Stotter and Miller met when their kids entered kindergarten together. Both women have worked as artists and as friends to advocate for the transcendent power of love and art to open hearts."
Bio: JOM I’m currently guest editing an issue of the arts quarterly the International Review of African American Art (IRAAA), scheduled for publication later this year. My theme is “The Evolving Imagery of the Black Woman.” As a performer, you could say I’m a ‘has- been.’ I ‘has-been’ an actress-dancer, working both on- and off-Broadway including Joseph Papp’s Public Theatre in Spell #7, and in both the Broadway production and National Tour of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. Most recently, I appeared in Karen Gersch’s Humanitee Tales and the Sugar Loaf Performing Art Center’s “Ten-Minute Plays.”
Bio: Stotter: Two-time Emmy Award winner Patricia Lee Stotter composes and writes for film, theatre and television. From Sesame Street to HBO/PBS documentary films, from independent features to plays and musicals, Stotter is all about the right voice at the right time. Her poem Feminist Rhetorical Practices was written on the day of the first womens’ march.
