Redefining how art integrates into the public realm, Mary Miss has reshaped the boundaries between sculpture, architecture, landscape design, and installation art, articulating a vision of the public sphere where it is possible for artists to address the issues of our time.

In 2009, Miss founded City as Living Laboratory, creating framework for making issues of sustainability tangible through the arts. Interdisciplinary collaboration is central to her work, creating projects as diverse as revealing the history of the Union Square Subway station in New York City to creating an atlas of water for the city of Milwaukee through WaterMarks. Miss’s influential work has been recognized by the Urban Land Institute's Global Award for Excellence, the 2017 Bedrock of New York City Award, and the 2019 Artist for Public Architecture Award from the Institute for public Architecture.
