Anna Campbell Bliss (1925 - 10/12/2015)
Anna Campbell Bliss's career has spanned decades, earning accolades and critical acclaim. Her work addresses both art and architecture, through an abstract tradition of painting and printing, expanding into three-dimensional concepts, computer generated screens and laser etching.
"Being both artist and architect, the need for communication has been a major concern in my research and in the art I have created. My work over the past sixty years has drawn upon a wide range of interests and visual explorations seeking to make connections: between nature and the constructed environment; the intuitive and predetermined process; poetry and math; and between the computer and the great tradition of artistic experimentation."
Bliss is a graduate of Wellesley College and earned her Masters of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. At the University of Minnesota's School of Art, she worked with Josef Albers. Her awards and honors are many; among them a Mid-Career Fellowship to the American Academy in Rome (1984); named an honorary alumna at the University of Utah's College of Fine Arts (2004); and a Pollock Krasner Foundation Award (2007).
Bliss's work has been on exhibit around the world; she has written and published "countless" times in professional and scientific publications, and has been commissioned for several public arts projects, including the Salt Lake International Airport.
