In My Nature – Art and Science, by Darra Keeton, A Retrospective, and Second Nature, a show of Darra’s students, at Rice University Media Center, May 30 – September 6, 2013.
Here is information about Darra’s story and how her project came about. Thanks to all her wonderful supporters she has been able to move forward with the project.
I have been very excited to be one of Darra’s students at Rice University, and now, to be her friend. She is an admirably energetic and talented woman who helped me break through in my own creativity and still motivates me today. This retrospective presents Darra’s work. It also includes the Second Nature exhibition, showing the work by Darra’s students. I am very proud and grateful to be included.
