Elaine Scheer (b. 1958) has made her reputation as a creator of installations-large scale temporal works of art, which allow the viewer to step inside and participate with her pieces. Her drawings, ceramics, and prints often reflect this interest in interactive art. Scheer’s works can be seen in exhibitions at the Dorothy Weiss Gallery in San Francisco, the Los Angeles Folk and Craft Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, and the Living Art Museum in Reykjavik, Iceland. Scheer earned her BFA at Sonoma State University in California, and her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute, and she currently serves as a Professor of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
