Elizabeth Hamby works between the studio, the classroom, and the city. Using drawing, installation, and participatory workshops, she explores the dynamics of place and the rhythms of everyday experience. Since 2010, she has worked with students, printmakers, and the New York City Housing Authority on a project called Alphabet City. This project considers the shapes of building footprints as a code that reveals the common language of the city’s past and present. This work has been exhibited at Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education in the Bronx, and led to a workshop and mural with the New York City Housing Authority. She is also a member of Meta Local Collaborative, a Bronx-based collective. Meta Local develops site-specific, participatory works that refer to the complexity of our community in the South Bronx. Elizabeth Hamby hold degrees from Eugene Lang College and Parsons School of Design (2006), and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
