Amy Stacey Curtis is the Maine Arts Commission's 2005 and 2017 Individual Artist Fellow For Visual Art and the recipient of numerous grants including those from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. From 1998 to 2016, Curtis completed an 18-year commitment to interactive installation art, 9 solo-biennial exhibits of large-in-scope, participatory works in 9 vast mill spaces throughout Maine. In the end, Curtis mounted 81 installations in 8 Maine towns while cleaning by hand each historic space (averaging 25,000 square feet). Each solo biennial was a 22-month process exploring a different theme, inviting audience to perpetuate and resolve each exhibit's 9 unique works. Curtis has exhibited interactive installation internationally, while her conceptual/process drawings are in many collections including Bates College Museum of Art, Colby College Museum of Art, Ogunquit Museum of American Art, and Portland Museum of Art. She has a large upcoming solo exhibition at the University of New Hampshire Museum of Art. Born 1970 in Beverly, Massachusetts, Curtis resides in Lyman, Maine.
