Lila Chapman

I’m Lila Chapman, an artist currently based out of New York. I never met my grandparents and my mom has 20 siblings and there are a few who I haven’t met or whom have passed away so I think the desire to learn more about them, especially as some of my aunts and uncles are getting older, is what is guiding me in this process. During the quarantine I will be interviewing my moms siblings about their experiences during the quarantine and during the interview I will also be asking questions about our family’s history. I hope to learn about where we come from and to develop a deeper connection with my grandma. Everyone has always spoken so highly of Grandma Classy and it would be nice to have some sort of connection to my grandparents and at this point I think tasing to my aunts and uncles will be the best way to do that.
