Additional Information

Maria E. Richa received her BFA from Columbus College of Fine Arts and Design and then taught printmaking to K-12 students with learning disabilities at the Mental Health Organization in Delaware, Ohio. Richa's MA in Art Education at Teachers College of Columbia University focused on developmental disabilities of autistic children, as well as printmaking.

According to Richa, her machine-like boxes with wheels are "transformed into male and female characters" that imply relationships. This colorful and playful piece reminds us of the importance of interpersonal relationships, particularly familial, which are well-known to promote health.
