Mass Media by Milo Andrea Marshall
“My assemblage of mass media consists of items recycled from the church paired with quotations from members of the clergy and text pieces of conversations from my everyday life –– ‘Come as you are.’ ‘Time, talent and treasure.’ ‘Everyone is welcome at God’s table.’ The piece is designed to express my faith in Communion.”
About the Artist
Milo Andrea Marshall was born on January 27, 1970, in Cincinnati, Ohio. She was baptized as a child of God and raised in the Episcopal faith of Christ Church Cathedral. Growing up, she served as an acolyte, sang in the children’s choir, and participated in many youth group activities that helped nurture her leadership skills.
As an adult, Milo has served the cathedral congregation as a vestry member, a diocesan delegate, and a lay Eucharistic minister. Currently, she is serving as third president of the Altar Guild and is a committee member and co-manager for the Yule pages for the Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival.
Every year, she cooks pancakes for the congregation’s “Shrove Sunday” breakfast. She also works to keep alive the memory of her beloved mother, Myrtle Marshall.
A national and Cincinnati section member of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), Milo is employed as a barber at Master Blaster Hair Care, which is owned by her father, George Marshall. She finds that participating in The Haircuts From The Heart program is a great example of faith.
