Molly Sherman’s creative practice spans client-based collaborations, commissioned creative works, and self-initiated projects, while operating within the overlapping fields of graphic design and socially-engaged art. She is dedicated to working collaboratively with diverse publics and creating participatory and site-specific projects that include local audiences in the making and meaning of the work. Her practice investigates an expanded approach to graphic design that creates new opportunities in form, connects to other disciplines, and encourages audiences to examine local contexts and social matters.
Molly received her MFA in Art and Social Practice from Portland State University and her BFA in Graphic Design from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She has worked as a designer at Project Projects in New York and with a range of cultural clients including the Hammer Museum and Amherst College. In 2012, she co-founded the artist group Public Doors and Windows with artists Harrell Fletcher and Nolan Calisch. Her work has been shown at the Centre Pompidou, the Matisse Museum in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, New Seasons Market, the Parthenon Museum, the Portland Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Folk Art, and the Institute of the Arts and Sciences at University of California, Santa Cruz. She recently joined the faculty at Texas State University as Assistant Professor in Communication Design. She lives in San Antonio, Texas.
