Artist Honoree Patricia Bulitt @ North

The City of Berkeley has selected dancer and interdisciplinary artist Patricia Bulitt as its Artist Honoree for International Women’s Month, March 2015.
North Branch commemorates her dedication to local watersheds and her celebration of women, girls, and storytelling as embodied by her Storytelling Tea Parties with a month-long in-library display of photographs from her Creek Dances and Tea Parties — originally displayed in the Addison Window Gallery — as well as a culminating performance and tea-party.
