Swoon's Sea Goddess Spotted Across the Pond

by Brad Rhines

Swoon's giant sea goddess at the New Orleans Museum of Art may stand as her great leap (or, swim) indoors. But, as she said when we interviewed her recently, there's an international community of artists that are her friends and family, and no reason to stay off the streets just because she has one piece of work in a museum. She’s worked with a like-minded band of builders and artists in Haiti, Venice, and, of course, New Orleans. And this past weekend the Great Hall's sea goddess, Thalassa, was spotted on the streets of London.
