Susan Porter is one of the founders of the Cooperative Artists Institute (CAI) in the early ‘70s, an organization which empowers people through various programs to solve their individual and collective problems by the Arts as a catalyst for personal and institutional changes. She currently works as a performing artist and workshop leader with Cooperative Artists Institute.  Before her work at CAI, she was part of the creative team at the Boston Children’s Museum, which developed the paper-making and book-making boxes for teachers.  Many of her journal books are now on exhibit at the Hamill Gallery in a show called Bhairava & Coloring Books through June 29th 2013. They will remain as art of an online exhibition at the Gallery website:
