Artist In Residence Nancy BlumBrooklyn-based artist Nancy Blum is well known for her public art commissions. For the new San Francisco General Hospital, she recently completed an installation of monumental glass windows that feature her robust botanical imagery. Previous projects include 50 hatch covers designed for the streets of Seattle and a sculptural installation for the city’s airport; a 40‐foot freestanding sculpture in Philadelphia; large-scale mosaics for New York City’s MTA Arts in Transit program; and artwork and architectural components for three light-rail stations in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Blum’s drawings and sculptures have been represented in numerous exhibitions at galleries and other venues across the US such as the Weatherspoon Art Museum, UNC Greensboro; the International Print Center, New York; and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Her most recent solo show, Wonderland, appeared at the Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York last year. Blum’s work is held in two dozen private and public collections, including the World Ceramic Exposition Foundation in Icheon, South Korea; the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art; and the Boise Art Museum. Also among these project is a permanent installation at the residence of the American Ambassador to Belgium.
