    Falling, Rooting, Rising: Rachel Means ’08 Comes Into Her Own as an Artist

    2021 Helen Cudahy Niblack '42 Arts Lecture Series

    Rachel Means '08 was going to be a physician.

And, despite art classes since childhood and obvious talent, Rachel admits it took a while to embrace herself as an artist.

Rachel graduated with a major in Studio Art and began the process of embracing this new direction for her life — a process she advises is ongoing throughout one’s life.
