Melissa Armstrong '07/ID

Brooklyn, NY

Melissa S Armstrong was born at the foot of the Rockies and raised in the mountains of Appalachia, where the geologic grandeur and history of both locations led to an interest in the sciences, especially Earth Science and Biology. Upon completion of her BFA in Industrial Design and a stint as an exhibit designer, she refocused her energies on installation and sculpture, with a formative show at the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design in 2007. She has continued to show in Boston, Providence, and Brooklyn as well as a show in the DMZ in Korea. After the completion of a staff-artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center, she traveled to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, where she received a NEA grant for a 5-week residency. Melissa currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and is one of the members of a new artist collective, Wayfarers Brooklyn.
