Deanna Pindell focuses on forest and water quality issues through sculpture, installation, and public art. She explores the complexity of these concerns and proposes functional, remediative solutions when possible.
As a citizen scientist and community-engaged artist, she has worked with climate scientists, marine biologists, water-quality chemists, soils scientists and a variety of community stakeholders.
Pindell also teaches art and gives presentations on ecoart history, practitioners, and potentials. Her background includes curation, gallerist, boardmember, theatrical scenic artist and set-builder, performer, producer … a wide range of experiences as befits a lifetime working artist.
She has received a Puffin Foundation Grant (2013), a McColl Center for Visual Arts EAIR (Environmental Artist in Residency) (2012), and other awards.
Deanna lives with her husband and animals on a tiny rural farm known as Pindellopia, an art project of a different sort.
