Ms. Grant-Cooper founded SISTAAH, Inc. (Survivors Inspiring Sisters Through Art and Advocacy for Health), an arts-based non-profit organization which seeks to inform, encourage and facilitate access to early detection of breast cancer by connecting the medically underserved to free screening services. Through SISTAAH, Inc., she also launched two successful grant-funded community art projects: Saving Our Sisters in the African American Community, and the Harlem Hand Fan Initiative.
Ms. Grant-Cooper creates assemblages using mixed-media and found objects which she repurposes into visual art. Among her collectors are Alice Walker, President Bill Clinton, Vy Higginson, Hoda Kotb, Hamilton Landmark Galleries, Heath Gallery and Universal Studios.
Her memoir A Feeling of Fullness: Insights of a Divinely Guided Journey Beyond Breast Cancer (2016) is available on her website: https://sistaah.org/

It's Valentine's Day 2021. Let's celebrate with a sentimental challenge: can you identify these lovers in art?
If you can guess all 10: you merit the whole pound of chocolates; 9-7: you merit a half a pound of chocolates; 7- 5: you merit a quarter of a pound of chocolates; 4 and under: you merit a Hersey's Kiss and a hug for trying. Thank you for taking the time to test your knowledge and click through for the correct answers. Please feel free to share with your fellow art history fans.
Happy Valentine's Day -
With love and hugs,
Beth and the New York Arts Exchange
