Comentarios: Discarded her last name (Escobar) during the 1950s. Came to the U.S. c.1945, and in the 1950s became part of the beat generation" living in Greenwich Village. Her satirical sculptural assemblages, combining carved and painted images with real objects, brought her fame in the 1960s. During the 1970s she traveled in the Far East, visiting India, Cambodia, and Thailand, and her work became tied more to nature than to the urban environment.
