Claudia Fitch

(American, born 1952)

Northwest artist Claudia Fitch creates imaginative sculptures and installations for public places. She states, "My work in public art playfully re-invents icons familiar in pop culture and art history, with the intention of linking a contemporary site with its over-arching cultural narratives."

Fitch received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington in Seattle, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1979. She received the 2014 Twining Humber Award for lifetime artistic achievement.
