Being Gladys

Gladys Barker Grauer

Gladys Barker Grauer passed away on September 5, 2019, but she is still being remembered through film festivals, documentaries and artist workshops. 

Gladys Barker Grauer’s life ranges from her birth in Chicago, attending the Chicago Art Institute to the Newark socialist left, from opening Newark’s first art gallery, Aard Studio, in 1971. 

WBGO's Brit Harley had the chance to sit down with Glady's daughter and also found never heard audio of Gladys in her own words.
