Elena Lehman Hilfer

1. — How Elena met Harry: It seems to me that I’ve known Harry from time immemorial or at least since our Pratt days. In 1965 Rosemary Hamilton and I lived across the hall from Pat Lautrella and Cathy (Catherine Murphy) at Ryerson Walk on campus. We witnessed how with doggedly determination he wooed Cathy and all of us in the process. I don’t know if it is because our birthdays are only a day apart or what but, we are definitely connected.

2. — Statement of my work: My work consists of trying to figure out why some spaces are visually exciting to me. Using color, form and line I try to investigate what caught my eye in the first place.
