Marguerite Elliot is a sculptor based in the San Francisco Bay Area with a strong background in feminist, environmental, social justice, and nuclear disarmament issues. She holds a B.A. from Pitzer College and has taught at institutions including Otis College of Art and Design and the Los Angeles Woman’s Building.
Elliot played a pivotal role in the feminist art movement in Los Angeles during the 1970s-1980s. Her work, archived at the Getty Museum, reflected her dedication to addressing societal issues through public installations and performances.
Despite the traditionally male-dominated field, Elliot became a hard-core welder, expressing her love for working with steel. She is recognized for creating large-scale public art with a focus on environmental concerns. Her sculptures can be found in sculpture parks in Finland, Denmark, France, Ireland, as well as in New York, Nevada, and California.
Marguerite Elliot has been awarded seven artist residencies in Europe and the United States. Her work has been showcased in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City.
