Gloria Orenstein was invited to be part of this year’s Venice Biennale but declined the offer because, at 84, she was reluctant to take on a big trip (she may participate in some other way via Zoom). The Biennale exhibition will include the documentary film “Gloria’s Call,” which discusses the 1971 phone call Gloria received from surrealist artist Leonora Carrington and the journeys it prompted, including a sojourn to the mountaintops of Samiland. Philippa Strum, P’98, made good use of the pandemic shutdown by completing her book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s 1970s gender-equality litigation, which will be published by the University Press of Kansas this year. She says she’s happy she can now fly to Atlanta to visit son David Strum Weiss ’98 and 9-year-old granddaughter Alexa.
