Shadow Spotlight: Creatively Iconic Women

3.18.19 Hello, lovelies! Another week is beginning and I wanted to do something special today. It’s the third Monday, which means Shadow Spotlight. Instead of focusing on one person, I’m gathering together a group of women who have made a creative mark. In art, photography, music, all avenues of creativity. Grace Jones, Marina Abramovic, Cyd Charisse, and Eartha Kitt are on top of a long list. It is Women’s History Month, right? Here are some women who really made an impression on me. GRACE JONES What can I say about this lady here? With her androgynous looks and outrageous style, she shows no signs of slowing down, even after five decades!         MARINA ABRAMOVIC The pioneer of performance art, I didn’t know who this woman was until several years ago.
