May Mystery Artist

Last month I received two mystery artist guesses through my blog! How fun!  
This prompted me to decide to accept more guesses through the blog.  

So here's how it will work: post your guess and name in the comments section of this blog post.  At the end of the month I will publish all of the guesses and include those in my monthly contest. For a special bonus, I will allow your guess to count as 2 if you submit a written one and a blog posted one! Good Luck!!

May Mystery Artist Facts:

I lived from September 23, 1899 – April 17, 1988.

I was a Russian born, American sculptor.

I am most know for my monochromatic wooden wall pieces and out door sculptures.

“About what black…the illusion of black means to me: I don’t think I chose it for black. I think it chose me for saying something. You see, it says more for me than anything else. In the academic world, they used to say black and white were no colors, but I’m twisting that to tell you that for me it is the total color. It means totality. It means: contains all.”  


  1. I love this idea and can't wait to share it with my students!
    My guess is Louise Nevelson.
    Learning lots from your blog-love it!!!

  2. We think it is Louise Nevelson.
