Jo Hansen passed away March of this year and the art community suffered a great loss.

Here is a touching biography on the WEAD site. She was a powerful force for environmentalism and feminism in the art world and a friend of YLEM.

Please come to Remember Jo, to take home some of her fabulous artwork, share food, and celebrate her legacy.
