Carmen Herrera, at the age of 101, is finally getting some recognition. In the 1950s and 1960s, she watched her male counterparts work gain notice, her work was mainly overlooked. However,perseverance has paid off with an exhibition of her work at the Whitney Museum in September. Here’s the a short NPR Weekend Edition podcast about Carmen. Hope it inspires all of us to keep working at our craft.
