Gift of the artist



Alexandra Grant is a Los Angeles-based artist, who uses language as a source for
imagery in sculpture, painting, drawing and video. Grant is known as a "radical
collaborator" - the longest of her exchanges being with the pioneering writer of
hypertext fiction, Michael Joyce. Grant is also known for her work in collaboration
with the Watts House Project, a non-profit in Watts, across the street from the Watts
Towers.
Grant's idea in creating the Love symbol is that an artist can also be a philanthropist.
Alexandra has had numerous gallery exhibitions and has been included in exhibitions
at MOCA, Los Angeles; LACMA; and the 2010 California Biennial of Art at the Orange
County Museum of Art.
