Laura Cooperman

Laura Cooperman is an artist and educator. She received her bachelor of fine arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Through the use of paper cutting, Cooperman creates sculptural installations based on her observations of landscapes, textile designs, architectural elements, wild vegetation, and commercial products from different cultures, which become pieced together with new meaning and purpose attached. Cooperman’s work has been recognized both regionally as a 2011 recipient of Cuyahoga County’s Creative Workforce Fellowship and nationally with shows in New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Internationally, she has participated in The Red Gate Residency in Beijing, China, and in 2013, her work toured with the Manchester Art Gallery exhibition, “The First Cut.” Currently, her work is on view at Grand Central Terminal’s exhibition, “On Paper, Grand Central at 100.”
