Sara Rabinowitz is an artist and textile designer inspired by the places she inhabits, which have included Florida, Rhode Island, New York, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio and Oregon. She is interested in how the contemporary landscape is shaped by the successes and failures of material production. Sara’s research has led her to work with invasive species: raising silk in Cleveland’s urban industrial core and seeping yellow dye gathered from factory farms in Illinois. Her work takes form through print, woven patterns, participatory invitations, and designed objects.
Sara received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and her Master of Fine Arts in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Sara’s artwork has been exhibited at HereArt in New York City, Gallery 400 in Chicago, SPACES gallery in Cleveland, and DITCH projects in Eugene OR. She coordinated ArtCamp at PS1 in Long Island City, a workshop with Rirkrit Tiravanijia at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and participated in an art and life workshop with ARTWAY OF THINKING from Venice Italy.
