"Movement in The Garden: Come as You Are" kicks off at noon on Wednesday, May 4 in the School of Art & Design Sculpture Garden. Learn more with this link >> https://art.gmu.edu/events/movement-in-the-garden.

Dinnerstein, was out of work with her performances canceled, recorded the album "An American Mosaic" at her Brooklyn home. The album has had nearly 3 million downloads on #iTunes, earning Dinnerstein a #GRAMMY nomination!
