Sandra Muss is a visual artist, educator, and philanthropist.
She earned a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute and a Master's Degree in Media from the New School for Social Research. She has taught painting and drawing at Fairleigh Dickinson University and Hunter College High School.
Muss' work has been most recently exhibited at the Hollis Taggart Gallery in New York City, and she is having a solo exhibit beginning in December 2015 at the Coral Springs Museum in Coral Springs, FL. Other exhibits have been at the Kelly Roy Gallery in Miami, The New Gallery of Modern Art in Charlotte, N.C., and at DTR Modern Galleries in Palm Beach, Washington, D.C. and Boston.
Critic and scholar Donald Kuspit has called Sandra Muss “a romantic, in the classic Baudelairean sense of the term.”
Bruce Helander, in Art Economist Magazine wrote, “The work of Sandra Muss is saturated in an assemblage format laid down on canvas and on aluminum panels. These compositions celebrate the great tradition of post-Abstract Expressionism and traditional collage, particularly with a nod to the early Pop artists of the 1960s, who were exploring a transition from symbols, recognizable imagery, narrative abstraction and images of popular culture to non-narrative works that were often embellished with found objects."
Muss received The Humanitarian Award at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation where she served as Chair of the Communications Committee. She has served as a member of the Boards of Directors for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, the New World Symphony, and the Young Arts National Foundation. She is currently serving as a member at the American Foundation of the Serpentine Galleries.
Muss' artworks are included in both private and corporate collections.
