Three years ago tomorrow, Deb left this world, and we still miss her very much.
Our homes are filled with images that she created. They remind us of the experiential art works that she conceived, some of which she was able to produce for a public showing.
One such realization of hers was the projection of images Deb created for Northern Spark 2011— the first year of Northern Spark’s Nuit Blanche: 24 hours of performance art hosted by Northern Lights. It was called MURMUR.
We found her contribution magnificent; it was fearlessly conceived and pushed well beyond the comfort of anything she had ever attempted before. Andy and Deb worked for months to build the back end of the tech together and, supported by many other people in the community, Deb created an amazing display that moved and inspired. We will always cherish the memory of that long day and night.
At the end of the night, Deb was tired but so deservedly proud. We believe that she was strengthened by this success, her spirit alight with new energy as she faced the next year—which was to be her last full year with us.
A grant from Northern Spark was instrumental in making that articulation of her vision possible. This year, to honor Deb’s memory we have donated $2,000 from the Debora Miller Memorial Fund to Northern Spark, and we take this opportunity to remember this special experience in our lives with her. With love.

In lieu of flowers, the family is looking for support to endow an arts grant to be developed in honor of Deb
(click the Donate menu above for more information).
Donations can also be made in her name to the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center at http://tinyurl.com/DMTribute.
When Debora Anne Miller passed away on February 28, 2013, we also lost her artistic vision. Her family would like to honor her commitment and love of art by creating a grant in her name, perhaps in partnership with an arts organization. It will take some time to develop this idea, but we want to offer everyone the opportunity to contribute to the fund if they wish. To learn more, click the Donate menu above.
