ABOUT THE ARTWORK

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Listening to stories and interacting with communities tie together Gloria Bornstein’s artworks and public art over more than four decades. She calls her art “visual poetry where textual and visual elements are interwoven”. Her artworks range from performance art and installations, to artist books, to sculptures and public art.

Born in the Bronx, NY, Gloria Bornstein attended Hunter College and received an MA in Psychology from Antioch University (1979). She taught performance at Cornish College in Seattle from 1979-81, and she taught sculpture and public art at the University of Washington from 1991-2005. She also practiced psychotherapy during that time.
