Artist's bio: Born in Washington, D.C., Elizabeth Catlett Mora (April 15, 1915 - 2013 April 2, 2012) was best known as a sculptor and printmaker and is considered one of the first black feminist artists. After receiving a BS in design from Howard University, she became the first student to receive an MFA from the University of Iowa School of Art. She later became the first female professor of sculpture at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and obtained Mexican citizenship. Her work - including a number of notable outdoor sculptures - is on display in many of the world's most venerable art museums.
