THE CURRICULUM VITAE OF MYRA BURG
 

Myra Burg has been designing and producing site-specific works of art since 1976. Her works range in size from tabletop to airplane hangar for freestanding, wall mounted or aerial constructions. Soft luxurious fiber in a symphony of color is introduced to the crispness of the metals, for solutions elegant in design, and elegant in the function of the support system. In the sculptural constructions, the structure of the art is expressed and integral with the design. Ms. Burg provides innovative solutions for unusual site parameters.

Although a licensed and practicing architect since 1984, Ms. Burg has shifted her practice to the design and installation of site-specific artworks, typically of unusual dimension for unusual spaces. She has placed several hundred installations for private collections and public spaces in Japan, throughout the United States, the Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico, and Australia. After returning to art in 1994 from a 5-year hiatus, her work has gained momentum, and is now considered to be of investment quality. She is also engaging in collaborative work with oil painter Liz Cummings. See myraburg.com for more information.
