In 1998, Deborah Haynes interviewed with Antonette ("Toni") Rosato for a position as a professor of art and art history at CU-Boulder. Not only did Haynes land the job, she began one of the most meaningful friendships of her life.
"Sitting at breakfast that first day," Haynes says," we initiated a tradition of conversation over meals about the mundane details of our lives, but also about art, the wider world, and spiritual life."
Work and conversation brought the two women closer. So it was a shock when Rosato was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in 2004.

Whether subtle and serious or bursting with color and whimsy, Melanie Yazzie’s art reveals self discoveries, loves, and struggles.
While Yazzie’s art is rooted in the culture of her Diné (Navajo) background and memories of a childhood spent on a reservation in Arizona, it also incorporates elements of her travels, nature, and personal health issues that add texture and depth to her work. Her goal is to create accessible art that moves people beyond the initial beauty of the prints and ceramics and into the story behind the pieces.
