Catherine Schwalbe
(River Park)

Born and raised Wisconsin - in a 130 yr old+stone house. Schwalbe came from a family of 9 children– most, comfortable using their hands. Chicago resident for nearly 40 years.
Schwalbe completed a BFA with a sculpture concentration at UW Milwaukee in 1983. Took additional classes at Artist Bookworks, Columbia College for the Book and Paper Arts, Lillstreet Art Center, and Chicago Industrial Arts and Design Center.

Schwalbe is a maker of objects including mixed media, sculpture, found objects, bronze & iron, installation & site specific works all centered around issues and aesthetics related to food systems, water, agriculture, and being human.

Schwalbe’s social practice works have been born out of the need and comfort with engaging people, and understood (now) as an overlap with her recreation therapy practice.
Schwalbe adheres to the Fluxus philosophy: “The distinction between Art and Life is irrelevant.”
