Announcing our 2021-2022 Artist-in-Residence

Please join us in welcoming our 2021-2022 Artist-in-Residence, Sally Lee!

Sally Lee is a Boston-based installation artist from Arkansas. Lee works in many mediums such as ceramics, painting, sculpture, textiles, and many more. Her art practice has served has a mechanism to navigate her place in the world as a first-generation immigrant. These experiences inform Sally on how to create conceptual work through historical, political and cultural contexts. Like her cultural identity, Lee’s combined aesthetic between Eastern and Western styles and philosophies are a part of her artistic fingerprint.
