Susa Cortez joins Making Ways
for an inspiring conversation about her immigration to the United States from Mexico as a teenager and the drive that compelled her to become an artist. Susa was the first in her family to go to college, earning a BFA from the University of Delaware and a master’s degree in fine art from Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her work includes performance, sculpture, and installations that often evoke memories of her early life in La Loma, a rural town in Guanajuato, Mexico. On this episode, Susa shares moving advice about finding your voice in whatever you do. She also discusses her role at visual arts nonprofit Root Division, celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and the impact the organization has had on her work and community connection.
