The final of our Artists in May Showcase is Dani Schechner.
Dani Schechner is an interdisciplinary artist and educator living in Jamaica Plain, MA. Dani's believes that creativity is simply embodied and materialized problem solving, mixed with joy and passion for innovation. In art making and teaching, we can create spaces for expanding upon potential and realization of ideas which move us to continue to enact or contribute to empowering epistemics.
