Dona Altemus, the youngest artist in Trading Places 2, is a 2012 graduate of New World School of the Arts, where she earned her BFA with a concentration in painting. For Trading Places 2, Altemus will investigate installation as a tool and explore spatial relationships that are activated when separate works interact. Altemus first came to Clearwater's attention when she presented her work at MOCA's unique Artist Critique program held twice a year, in which approximately 15 students from South Florida art schools present their work to MOCA's curators for critique at each session. Clearwater notes, "I was impressed by the initial presentation and the maturity of Altemus's vision. Trading Places will provide her with the opportunity to determine her post-graduate path."
