From Edward Winkleman we learn the very sad news that artist Nancy Spero has passed away at the age of 83.  Spero earned a B.F.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1949, and lived in Chicago with her husband, the painter Leon Golub in the early 1950s (where both were associated with the Monster Ronster group of Chicago artists, which also included Don Baum and H.C. Westermann) before moving to Paris to study painting. An interview with Spero conducted by Art21 can be found here. May she rest in peace.
