Meet Meg Saligman

Posted by: Roy Wilbur

An internationally recognized artist and a master at transforming the two-dimensional surface, Meg Saligman is known for her collaborative process and intricate designs, which bring new life to existing architecture using a variety of media. She depicts observations of community and the cycle of life in saturated palettes, using groundbreaking techniques that consistently garner critical acclaim. Saligman’s numerous commissions have resulted in works of art on a massive scale, including both the largest publicly funded mural and the largest single project mural in the United States. Creator of Philadelphia’s landmark Common Threads mural, Saligman’s national and international work includes a fresco in Mexico City, Millennium Moon in Shreveport, LA, and the recently completed Fertile Ground in Omaha, NE. This past summer she created Our Common Ground: The Good Life to encourage election related dialogue at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Saligman was named by Public Art Review as one of ten influential muralists in the country and has received numerous awards, including honors from The National Endowment for the Arts.
