A look back through the Magazine


While creating a collection of handmade-paper paintings for a project she started in fall 2004, Jill Littlewood, X’71, found death all around her: in art books, movies, photographs, anthropological articles, and, of course, religious imagery. “The rich culture of death is evident everywhere if you are looking for it,” she wrote in exhibit notes. With 200 panels, 18 x 24 inches each—including such pieces as Enso (above/left) and Woman, Leaves—Death and Other Lives shows this summer in Chicago. See May–June/08 “On Exhibit.”
