Remembering Anna Valentina Murch

There was a memorial for Anna Valentina Murch on May 4 and I wasn’t able to attend.

She was a studio art professor at my school, my former minor advisor and I took her beginning sculpture class in 2009 where she was often exasperated but encouraging of my artistic process. She passed away during spring break and I still haven’t completely processed this loss yet.

I’m looking at old pictures of sculptures I’ve made in her class and it’s dawning on me more and more now that I’ve made some of my best art when she was my instructor. She’ll be missed.
