In the article Local Artist Returns Home with a New Show,
Nancy Kirsch talks about how Leslie Friedman became the installation artist and printmaker she is today (and the stops she made on the way):
A political science major at Brown University, she found deep satisfaction in making silk-screening posters of local rock-and-roll bands with whom she was friendly. In fact, her art work is one of the reasons she cited for not taking a junior year abroad to study.
Having lived all her life in Rhode Island, she planned to travel around the world for a year after graduating from Brown. After visiting friends in Mexico, her second stop on her “world tour” was Argentina, which she liked so much she stayed for 2½ years – thus ending her around-the-world tour!
