In Loving Memory

January 11, 2012


On Monday, the Justseeds family lost our dear friend and collective member Dara Greenwald who passed away from cancer at age forty. We cherish the memories of an incredible person and an incredible life. Many will remember Dara for her art and activism – her video work, her scholarship, the Pink Bloque, the United Victorian Workers (pictured above), Spectres of Liberty, the Interference Archive, and the Signs of Change exhibition. We will remember her as a friend – someone whose sense of humor and wit was second-to-none, and someone whose words and actions will inspire us for the rest of our lives. We love you Dara.

Josh I am sorry for your loss and our loss. Although my connection was slight I am deeply inspired by what she did as an artist and as a activist.

Met Dara when Pink Bloque came to my class at Columbia College Chicago. Our paths crossed several times since in different contexts–all remarkable and unforgettable. I am eternally inspired by her and commit to bringing her work and spirit to others.

I saw a photo of United Victorian Workers a few years ago and marveled at what a great design it is for processional street performance; I thought the people who designed this were being very incisive and inspired in their creation. How wonderful to have achieved this event!

Sending loving and healing energy to you Josh and to everyone who knew, loved and respected Dara. I did not know her well but was continually inspired by the work and light she brought to her work and life.

So sorry to learn of this loss and wishing Josh and all who knew and loved Dara much strength.
