Beauty as a Relative Concept

The Larry Kirkwood body cast exhibit recently concluded on the campus of the University of Wyoming. My gratitude is extended to Sonya Meyer (Associate Professor in Textiles and Merchandising, Department of Family and Consumer Sciences) for her leadership with this inspirational project. Meeting and talking with Larry was a milestone in my journey toward self-acceptance of my body. Where are you on your journey? For this monthís thought bullets, I share some of the insights I gained from Larryís presentation and art.
