Marianne Lettieri is a visual artist whose mixed media constructions and art installations investigate shifts in cultural and individual values associated with everyday objects and discarded materials. She presents these artifacts in new configurations that reinforce the interconnectedness of people and communities through time and infuse historical symbols with contemporary meanings.
Solo exhibitions include Never Ending Thread at San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles; Marianne Lettieri: Reflections at San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design; Don't Get the Wrong Impression at Fort Worth Community Art Center; Strings Attached at Monterey Peninsula College; House/Work at Peninsula Museum of Art; Evidence of Life at Doug Adams Gallery in the Badè Archaeology Museum, and Changing Context at Azusa Pacific University.
Numerous books and art journals have featured her art, including Placemaking and the Arts by Jennifer Allen Craft, Art-Making Collections & Obsessions by Lynne Perrella, Image Journal, SEEN Journal, Sand Hill Review, and Ruminate Magazine.
She has an M.F.A. in Spatial Arts from San Jose State University and B.F.A. in Drawing and Printmaking from University of Florida.
