Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Mattress Factory receives grant to digitize Greer Lankton archive

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Mattress Factory receives grant to digitize Greer Lankton archive. “Born a boy, Lankton had sexual reassignment surgery at the age of 21. The artist worked in New York City’s East Village in the 1980s, creating lifelike, sewn dolls posed in elaborate, theatrical settings. The dolls, modeled on friends or celebrities, could be glamorous and grotesque. Lankton was 38 when she died in 1996.”
