"Meet The Maker: Alexandra Grant"
in Pasadena Magazine
by Sara Smola
Multi-hyphenate Alexandra Grant shares her thoughts on her fundraising initiative, grantLOVE, which produces and sells apparel, accessories, jewelry, as well as artwork and home goods to benefit artists and arts-based nonprofits.
Artist Alexandra Grant has her hands in many pies to say the least. A multi-hyphenate powerhouse—an exhibiting visual artist, filmmaker, cofounder of publishing house X Artists' Books, just to name a few of the pies—it's not hard to deduce that Grant's skillset and talent run through many channels.
After an early life spent moving around, Grant settled down in Los Angeles in 2001, creating the framework and home base for her practice and life as an artist, which included a stint as an adjunct professor at ArtCenter College of Design.
"I lived in South Pasadena for many years, and it was there that I found community and developed the work that led to my early exhibitions at The Museum of Contemporary Art and other institutions and galleries," says Grant.
