Artist, poet, activist and philosopher, Cecilia Vicuña (born in Chile, a long-time resident of New York) has been noted for many decades for her work in a wide variety of media and venues.

Sullivan, Professor of Latin American and Caribbean Art History and Deputy Director of the Institute of Fine Arts
