Meet Artist Janet Echelman

August 2, 2019

Event Details: To Be Announced
Beverly Hills, CA 90210


American artist, Janet Echelman, reshapes urban airspace with a monumental, fluidly moving sculpture that responds to environmental forces including wind, water and sunlight.

She will speak about her experiential sculptures and creating vibrant focal points for civic life.


Artist Janet Echelman defies categorization. She creates billowing sculpture engineered to the scale of buildings, choreographed by wind and light, that shifts from being an object you look at, to a living environment you can get lost in.

Echelman’s TED talk “Taking Imagination Seriously” has been translated into 35 languages and viewed by millions. Recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award, Harvard Loeb Fellowship, and Fulbright Lectureship, Echelman was named an Architectural Digest Innovator for "changing the very essence of urban spaces." Oprah ranked Echelman’s work #1 on her “List of 50 Things That Make You Say Wow!”
