About the Artist
Elisa H. Hamilton is a multimedia artist and space maker whose practice focuses on the creation of inclusive artworks that emphasize shared experiences and the hopeful examination of our everyday places, objects, and experiences. A New England native, she is a proud graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design where she earned her BFA in Painting in 2007 and now serves on the Board of Trustees. Her work has been shown locally and nationally in solo and group exhibitions. Her ongoing project "Dance Spot" has engaged with a variety of communities all around Boston, as well as at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, and Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA. She has been the recipient of four public art grants to create temporary public works in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood, and a Creative City grant from New England Foundation for the Arts. She has held artist residencies with Vermont Studio Center, Boston Center for the Arts, the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts, and the Fenway Alliance. Recent projects include "Sound Lab," a special community sound project that was featured in "Listen Hear: The Art of Sound" at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, "Community Legacy," a collaboration with the MIT List Visual Arts Center, and "Slideshow," co-presented by HUBweek and Now+There. Ms. Hamilton continues her practice at her South End studio at Boston Center for the Arts.
