KAREN DANA COHEN
Born in Mexico City 1982
Lives and works in Chicago, IL
I have been surrounded by the Art World since I started undergraduate art program. That experience has given me a perspective on critical thinking that developed in a personal attentiveness to the problems of the actual world. Now I feel the need to contribute to society in a more concrete way. I want to have the opportunity to start.
