Elemental Arts mourns today the loss of Katherine Hagedorn who passed away peacefully on November 12th after a long illness.

Katherine did much to bring the Elemental Arts Initiative to life. She shepherded the beginnings of the Elemental Arts idea of creating a vibrant arts culture in the campus and community of Pomona College, oversaw the setting up of the Initiative, and led the Steering Committee in its first year. Throughout, she led with calmness, generosity, fairness, pragmatism, a twinkle in her eye, and great good humor. She was an inspiration, a mentor, and a friend. Her music, and her laughter, will be missed by all.

The Elemental Arts Steering Committee joins with the Pomona College community, and all who loved Katherine, in sadness at her passing, and in reaching out with our hearts to her family.
