Virginia Jaramillo with Erin Dziedzic

Virginia Jaramillo has a longstanding connection to Kansas City, Missouri. In 1975, her work was displayed at the Douglas Drake Gallery in Kansas City as part of the group exhibition Less is More. This exhibition generated momentum and interest in her work, resulting in acquisitions by various institutional and private collections in the area, including Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2019, curator Erin Dziedzic and Jaramillo met for the first time.
