Whitney Frazier is an interdisciplinary artist and educator living in Baltimore City, MD. She completed her BA in Painting and MFA in Community Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Since 2002 Frazier has been active in community arts throughout Baltimore City. Her most recent project included a series of murals on the T. Rowe Price campus that represented their core values—interconnectivity, integrity and ethics.
Another recent project was in Darley Park (East Baltimore) involving local residents in a series of design workshops for place-making in more than 20 abandoned lots in the area. This included design of an interactive, multi-use performing arts amphitheater which includes three sun sails designed by the Darley Park Seniors. Over the past five years Frazier worked in partnership with the Neighborhood Design Center and other community organizations to raise funds for several outdoor mural projects and play spaces.
Currently, Frazier is painting large scale abstract murals commissioned by local institutions, teaching and advising at MICA and the Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School, raising her daughter and advocating for arts in Baltimore schools. Whether she is creating murals, videos or performances, Frazier believes that through the collaborative process art can transform lives and strengthen our communities.
