The CSE community was saddened to learn of the sudden passing of one of our own; sculptor, artist, educator, and mother, Dora Notella. Her sculpture “Sentinel” was celebrated in our 2020 CSE Exhibit.

We honor her dedication and advocacy of art in public places. Her work is featured in public venues and private collections across the United States and around the world including Rome, Italy; Merida, Venezuela; Chicago, Grand Rapids, Cleveland, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, and New York City.

Her art celebrates the human form but also makes a statement about motherhood, sexuality, feminism, and humanity. She left a legacy of beauty in art and sculpture that will move people for generations to come.
