Human Algorithm 03: Carrie Seid: Public Commission Artist, 3-3
“Your Genius Deserves Your Full Attention.” That’s Carrie Seid’s quote. As a lifetime artist, Carrie has always been fascinated by materials and scope. This interest spurred Carrie to receive her B.F.A. from The Rhode Island School of Design in 1984, then went on to receive her M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art, where she was a Merit Scholar.
Carrie has taught at numerous universities around the United States, including The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, State University of New York at Buffalo, Niagara County Community College, Daemen College, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. Her extensive teaching career spawned “Creative Catalyst Training,” her own program designed to help artists remove creative blocks and reach their highest goals. Carrie leads live workshops, conducts corporate trainings, and individual consultations with artists and other creative professionals.
