Sheri Simons


Sheri Simons is interested in sculpture as an instrument, broadly defined as something that aids in or causes an action or a reaction. Working in wood, sound, and movement has led to solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries in the U.S., Canada, and South America. Several pieces were funded by the Japan/U.S. Friendship Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the Michigan Council for the Arts. Public arts commissions in California, Ohio, and Washington have provided the opportunity to think large, incorporate pedestrians in art, and experiment with a variety of media. Teaching at CSU, Chico has been a great source of inspiration.
