A painter and installation artist, Schuleit was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2006 for work that has "conceptual clarity, compassion, and beauty."
While a graduate student at Dartmouth, Schuleit served as visiting artist at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston, where her installation, "Bloom," was created to address the persistent absence of flowers in psychiatric settings. 28,000 blooming flowers were brought to the center as it was closing, flooding hallways and day rooms on every floor. Since then her paintings and projects have been featured at New York Live Arts, the University Museum of Contemporary Art at UMass Amherst, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and at the Eastman School of Music.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
"During my time as a grad student at Dartmouth I studied with several extraordinary professors whose interdisciplinary teachings formed and changed the way I approach my work, both in creative writing and in the visual arts. Their openness, curiosity, and interdisciplinary spirit have been a guiding light to me," Schuleit says.
