Beth Grossman is a socio-political artist, who sees the visual as a way to create community dialog. Her art and participatory performances are comfortable points of entry into the ongoing dialog about ‘correct’ history, the life-shaping force of religion and the power of social beliefs.
Grossman has collaborated internationally with individuals, communities, corporations, non-profits and museums in the US, Russia, China and Germany. She uses art as a creative force to stimulate conversation and focus attention on the environment, history and civic engagement – all aimed at raising awareness, building community and encouraging public participation.
The public conversations prompted by Grossman’s artwork consistently capture the interest of the mainstream media. This includes coverage by Chinese and German television and feature stories in the LA Times, New York Times, Miami Herald, Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Atlanta Constitution, NPR and KRON4 News.
