$20,000 toward the catalogue that will accompany the traveling exhibition Hannelore Baron: Works from 1967 to 1987, with a lead essay by independent curator and art critic Ingrid Schaffner. Born in Dillingen, Germany, Baron and her family escaped Nazi persecution and settled in New York in 1941. Constructed with everyday materials such as torn cloth, paper and string, Baron’s collages explore human fragility and the passage of time through her personal iconography of figures, birds, and letters.
