The work of Chicago-based artist Lynn Basa can be found in public and private collections around the U.S. In addition to doing site-specific commissions, she has a studio practice making objects around themes of accidents, awkwardness and secrets. She is the founder of Corner, a neighborhood storefront gallery for artists who experiment with installations that intersect with daily life. Basa is the author of The Artist’s Guide to Public art based on a course she developed while teaching in the Sculpture department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Before devoting full-time to her studio practice, she was the founding director and curator of the University of Washington Medical Center’s art program and collection.
