I first met Mimi when I was a grad student at the University of California, San Diego. Her husband, Paul Brach, had been the founding chair of the Visual Arts Department. Although they had left by the time I arrived in 1974, their presence was still very much felt. Mimi had a show at UCSD's Mandeville Art Gallery in 1975, and as a grad assistant I worked with art historian Moira Roth on the exhibition catalogue: The Shrine, the Computer and the Dollhouse.
