Sandra Menefee Taylor is a Minnesota artist who pushes the boundaries of the role of the artist and art making: building bridges between the audience and the artwork, what writer Suzi Gablik calls "connective esthetics."
She was a member of the Women's Art Registry of Minnesota (WARM) -- one of the first women's gallery collectives in the United States -- during its formative years in the 1970s and '80s. Since then, her work is part of the growing "art in the public interest."
Many of her projects invite the audience to contribute their own memory, experience, and reflection, which she incorporates in sculptural installations that connect the audience back to themselves and their own authentic wisdom.
Taylor is a member of Form + Content Gallery, Minneapolis
