(1943 – )
Linda Stein (American, b. 1943) is a feminist, artist, activist, educator and writer.“My goal as an artist,” Stein says, “is to use my art to transform social consciousness and inspire activism for peace, equality and diversity. With my androgynous forms and pop-culture icons, I invite the viewer to seek diversity in unpredictable ways, to ‘try on’ new personal avatars and self-definitions.”
Stein holds an M.A. from Pratt Institute, and a B.A. from Queens College. She also studied at Pratt Graphics Center, the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts.Stein received the NYC Art Teachers Association/UFT Artist of the Year award, and in 2016, she received the Artist of the Year Award from the National Association of Women Artists for her “Outstanding Contribution to the Arts.” Her art archives are at Smith Collegeand the Linda Stein Art Education Collection is housed at Penn State University.
