Angela Ellsworth
Artist, Performer

Angela Ellsworth is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, and professor. She founded the Museum of Walking in Phoenix, AZ, and created the Plural Wife project, which navigates how the body relates to gender and sexuality. The project explores the inherent queerness in early Morman polygamy that Angela witnessed in her ancestry growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Power song : Say Yes by Elliott Smith

Quote : That non-heteronormative history of my ancestry also runs parallel to my queerness now. It was a way for me to sort of join hands with a history that I ran far away from and to kind of look back again and see how it, in some ways, was similar to my non-heteronormative relationship.
