Ann T. Rosenthal brings to communities 30 years experience as an artist, educator, and writer. Her art installations address the local manifestation of global concerns, including climate change, food safety, and nuclear waste. Over the last few years, her work has been shown at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Exit Art and the Hudson River Museum in New York, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education in Philadelphia, and Kunsthaus Kaufbeuren in Germany. From 2006-2009, she directed the Community Trail Art Initiative, partnering with trail organizations and post-industrial communities to reconnect citizens, educational institutions, and youth to their forgotten waterways as sites of common experience, history and possibility. Her essays and work on eco/community art have been published in several journals and anthologies, most recently in Blaze: Discourse on Art, Women and Feminism, edited by Karen Frostig and Kathy A. Halamka (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle, UK, 2007) and Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame by Beverly Naidus (New Village Press, CA 2009). Ms. Rosenthal teaches environmental art and design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Plymouth State University, NH. She received her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 1999.
