Video: Swoon - "From Street Art to High Art"

Caledonia Curry, aka Swoon, started her career as a street artist, but leapfrogged to museums and galleries. Now she has expanded her work to include installation and performance art, often with an activist bent.  In the short video below Caledonia shares some thoughts on her most recent work and gets personal discussing life and death and how it has affected her recent pieces. There is also a charming story about the MOMA reaching out to her that keeps things equally lite and fun this morning.
