Linda Weintraub

In addition to being an artist, Linda Weintraub is a curator, educator, and author of several popular books about contemporary art. After a brief career as a dancer, she earned an MFA degree from Rutgers University in ceramic sculpture. Her current art practice engages the plants, animals, soils, insects, and microbes she cultivates on her homestead in upstate New York. Her recent writing explores the vanguard intersection between art and environmentalism, including the series, Avant-Guardians: Textlets in Art and Ecology and TO LIFE! Eco Art In Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet (University of California Press). Weintraub established Artnow Publications in order to apply environmental responsibility to the book’s material production. She is also the author of In the Making: Creative Options for Contemporary Artists and Art on the Edge and Over: Searching for Art’s Meaning in Contemporary Society. Weintraub served as the Director of the Bard College museum where she curated over sixty exhibitions. She was the Henry Luce Professor of Emerging arts at Oberlin College. Her current book projects include Art-is-an Environmental Health Clinic
