Shelley Spector is a multidisciplinary artist based in Philadelphia. In her practice she responds to available resources, often discarded, in combination with a changeable work environment. She produces distinct bodies of work that search for social interconnectedness. Her work is part of many public and private collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which presented her solo exhibition “Keep The Home Fires Burning” in 2015, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and Human Rights Campaign in Washington, DC. Spector has received grants from the Pollock-Kranser Foundation, Independence Foundation Fellowship in the Arts, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Leeway Foundation.
