Marylyn Dintenfass

In Marylyn Dintenfass' work, color takes center stage. The shapes, lines, textures and symbols in pieces speak to her beginnings in abstract expressionism.  Through this visual language, she says that her work "relates to communication through the visceral channel." 

Dintenfass has twice been a MacDowell Fellow and has received both an Individual Artist Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts and two Project Grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. She was awarded the Silver Medal at the First International, Mino, Japan, and The Ravenna Prize at the 45th Faenza International in Italy. Academic positions have included Visiting Professor at the National College of Art and Design in Bergen and Oslo, Norway; Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel: Sheridan College in Toronto, Canada and Hunter College in New York City. She was, for ten years, a member of the faculty at Parsons School of Design in New York City.

Marylyn's "Parallel Park" 2010, a 30,000 square foot installation in Fort Myers, Florida is a stunning example of the transformative power of art in public spaces.  In  April, Marylyn was a 2023 honoree of the New York Foundation of the Arts and was inducted into their Hall of Fame.
