Kelsey Harrison is a newly Salt Lake City based sculptor. She uses craft and architecture vernaculars to investigate the way form and material “speak”, and the way we understand our social roles from city planning, from architecture, from furniture, from joinery, from material. Her work has been shown in institutions nationally including The Jewish Museum, Abrons Art Center, and The Knockdown Center in New York, SOMArts in San Francisco, The Sullivan Galleries in Chicago and The College of William and Mary in Virginia. She was the recipient of the PSGA Public Art Grant at SUNY Purchase, and was a 2014-15 resident at Brooklyn Wayfarers Studio Residency, as well as the School of Making Thinking, Peters Valley, The Wassaic Project, and The Miranda Arts Project Space. Harrison received her BFA in Sculpture from Purchase College, State University of New York and her MFA in Sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
