    Thank you to jurors Kim MawhinneyKatya Heller, Lin Zhang and Karen Donnellan for choosing “Joan of the Roses” to be part of the Ireland Glass Biennale 2023, taking place at the Coach House Dublin Castle for an amazingly long exhibition from April 20 to August 20, 2023. 
    Kudos to my friends and my students at The National College of Art and Design especially Dr. Caroline Madden. I enjoyed teaching at NCAD in 2022, and remember no mask requirement for the first week of class and the policy changing for masks for the second week. Glad that is over, right! The focus of my work is Joan of Arc, martyr and a national symbol of France. Standing among floating roses in front of a landscape and a constellation of stars. The art is hand painted, silk screened and airbrushed enamel paint on stained glass. The glass is fired in a kiln at 1290 degrees Fahrenheit which melts the paint permanently onto the glass surface. The work is then solder together.
    2) Philosophy and Art and Film?

The full length twelve minute video will be out soon.

  • Lauri Lyons (Visual Arts & Photography / USA 2008 & 2021) is happy to share her latest news: On November 10, 2022, the Savannah City Council in Georgia unanimously voted to remove John C. Calhoun’s name from one of the City’s historic squares. The vote represents a triumphant victory for the enslaved and free Black people buried beneath the square, their descendants living throughout the African Diaspora, and the people who support democracy and racial justice in America.
    In July 2020, Lauri began to formally research and investigate the existence of the “Old Negro Burying Ground” and its surrounding history. During the research process, she learned the 258-year-old unmarked burial ground does exist and is located in Savannah’s Historic Downtown District, surrounded by landmarked buildings.
    The Old Negro Burying Ground is partially located, beneath Calhoun Square and Whitefield Square. John C. Calhoun was an infamous politician who vehemently advocated for slavery and organized acts of genocide against Black and Indigenous people. Calhoun’s racist philosophies laid the groundwork for the American Civil War and continues to influence America’s social and political discourse today. Rev. George Whitefield was a religious icon, slave owner, and prolific lobbyist for legalizing slavery in Georgia.
    In August 2020, Lauri launched a petition to remove Calhoun’s name from the square. The petition was an act of faith that led her to found the Rest With Honor Savannah Initiative, which gathered petition signatures and created public awareness and programs about the burial ground, John C. Calhoun and Rev. George Whitefield.
    This journey has not been easy or pleasant. It has been an extraordinary experience that catalyzed transformation for the ancestors, herself and the City of Savannah. A shift in consciousness and policy has occurred. Mission accomplished!
