Categories: Artists

Dorothy Miller had exquisite taste in art.
Miller, one of the first curators hired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, was responsible for pioneering exhibitions of new American artists, including Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella and Jasper Johns.
In 1942, Miller put on her first “American” show, which exhibited a selection of unknown artists with eclectic backgrounds and styles. That first show was panned, but many of the artists she featured went on to become giants in the field.
Although she retired from MOMA in 1969, Miller continued to serve the art community by participating on the advisory board that determined the World Trade Center’s featured artwork. Most of these pieces were lost in the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks.
Miller died on Friday. Cause of death was not released. She was 99.

    Be it drugs, explosives
    or even cancers the olfactory capability of the dog needs to be exploited.
    Surely it would behoove us to try and implant some human genes into a dog to make it easier to communicate with the animal.
