Mary Brogger is an internationally recognized artist whose diverse practice includes sculpture and site-responsive installation, as well as art direction, fashion, jewelry, furniture, and light fixture design. Brogger's knowledge of the history of art and design, along with her refined and accomplished use of materials, provide the visual richness, technical agility, and conceptual cohesion that characterize her practice. Until relocating her studio to Los Angeles in 2009, Brogger served as an instructor in the Sculpture and the Fiber and Materials Studies Departments at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a recipient of distinguished awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Illinois Arts Council and has been nominated for awards and fellowships from the Richard H.
