Sue Clancy takes information about people and places and transforms it into a visual story about the people and place – which allows an organization to tell its story to visitors in a friendly way.
That’s a fancy way of saying that Clancy makes art to inform and cheer people.
Sue enjoys creating humorous art for “serious” places. Much of her artwork is placed in public organizations and institutions such as universities, children’s hospitals, pediatrician’s offices, libraries, museums, schools, child advocacy centers, law offices and mental health centers.
She purposefully designed many of these projects to tell the story of the organization (their mission) and to include some physical attributes (wall colors, furniture, landscape, people, animals) of the organization where her artwork is placed.
More information and a list of some of the institutions with artwork by Sue Clancy in their public spaces is on the about page. Here’s an image of one of Sue’s public art projects.
