December 18, 2012As part of the Amherst Biennial 2012, performance and installation artist Karen Dolmanisth presented a contemplative art-making performance, accompanied by live music and dance, in the Mead’s historic Rotherwas Room. Other performers included dancer Barbara Cortez-Greig and sitar-player Sandy Cortez-Greig. At the end of the performance, everyone moved outside to Stearns Steeple, where Amherst College’s campus project manager and utilities engineer Aaron Hayden, also an avid musician, serenaded the group on the steeple’s nine-bell chimes.
