Noted artist Judy Pfaff visits Ohio State today as a guest of the Graduate Student Art Club.

Pfaff creates installations, sculptures, and drawings that explore the possibilities of line in space using materials that range from tree roots to steel, plastics, fiberglass, and plaster. Through a distinguished career that stretches back to the 1970s, she has exhibited internationally and received many prestigious awards—including a MacArthur Fellowship and National Endowment for the Arts grants. Pfaff has also been strongly dedicated to education in the arts.

Pfaff's art is featured in such publications as After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art and Judy Pfaff, a monograph by critic and art historian Irving Sandler. Her work is in collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, the Detroit Institute of Art, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
