Immigrants Of The Week: Carmen Herrera, Mirza Tihir and Tomoaki Kato

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: CARMEN HERRERA - ARTIST

 Carmen herrera
The cover of today's New York Times tells the extraordinary story of Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera who has worked as an artist for decades and is finally enjoying real success. She's one of the hottest artists in New York and her paintings regularly sell for $30,000+. Her work is on display at the Museum of Modern Art and her work is now touring in England. Ms. Herrera moved to Paris with her American husband for a few years after World War II and then moved to the US where she embarked on her long career. About five years ago, her years of obscurity ended when she was finally discovered.

But here's why this story is so remarkable. Carmen Herrera is 94 years old and is now busier than ever. If there is someone who is an inspiration to persevere, it is this gifted artist.
