Today I learned my dear mentor, Dr. Phoebe Lloyd ,an eccentric "artsy" Grandma figure whom I admired tremendously, passed away in 2005. The first day I met her, she flashed a Mapplethorpe Photo and asked, "Do you know what this is??? After several seconds of silence.... it’s a __ hole.
She was an art historian, a writer, a fabulous cook, and a total rebel. Her lectures were stories of real life in art and I am better for having known her.
