ITAS Podcast Season 4, Ep.6

Beatrice Wood played a significant role in the Dada movement, had a romance with Marcel Duchamp, and inspired the character of Rose in James Cameron’s Titanic. She lived till 105 years old and was a working artist to the end. Although she never really made a living with her art, she was one of the most influential women in the 20th-century art scene.

If you’ve never heard about her now is the time! Listen to my conversation with the Director of Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts in Ojai, CA Kevin Wallace.
