Kate Dodd is a sculptor. She was awarded a fellowship to create a demonstration garden for the project Designing for Children in Community Gardens.
Kate received her B.F.A. from Pratt Institute in 1983, and her M.F.A. from Columbia University in 1990, and currently lives and teaches in New Jersey. She has exhibited her artwork nationally in museums, galleries, and colleges, and has been teaching art in public and private schools for 20 years.
Kate has been awarded residencies at MacDowell, Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Papermaking, the Connemara Conservancy, Cummington Community for the Arts, the Vermont Studio School and numerous schools in the tri-state area. In addition to site-specific installations, she has large scale works commissioned by NJ Transit in Bayonne, Newark, South Amboy, and Hoboken.
Kate's installations provide a heightened sensory experience for the viewer occupant, while reexamining institutional and conventional notions of architecture and its relationship to the environment.
