Minerva Durham -- Bio

Minerva Durham is quoted in Peter Steinhart's best-selling book on figure drawing: The Undressed Art, Why We Draw,and a drawing by her was included in A Decade of Contemporary American Figure Drawing, curated by Norman Lundin in 2002 for the Frye Art Museum, Seattle. An article in the New York Times, A Beginner's Guide to Walk-In Art Classes, praises her teaching and describes her as, 'an earthy hippie with a gentle manner.' Most recently, a David Sedaris short story mentions her and her Skeleton.

Born in St. Louis MO, Minerva Durham has lived in NYC three decades. She taught drawing at Parson's School of Design for ten years before opening Spring Studio in SoHo. For twenty years she has presented figure-drawing sessions there open to the public seven days a week. The studio has exhibited the works of hundreds of artists, both professionals and students, and has presented many events of music, dance and writing, and Body Painting based on the nervous, muscular and circulatory systems.
