Scherezade Garcia was born in the Dominican Republic, and has lived in New York since attending Parsons The New School for Design on a full merit scholarship. Her work frequently evokes memories of faraway home and the hopes and dreams that accompany planting roots in a new land. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art (Washington, DC), El Museo del Barrio (NY), the Housatonic Museum of Art (CT), and El Museo de Arte Moderno (Santo Domingo, DR). Her art has been reviewed regularly in media such as The New York Times, Art Nexus, The Wall Street Journal, and El Diario. She received her AAS from Altos de Chavon The School of Design (La Romana, DR), BFA from Parsons The New School for Design (NY), and her MFA from The City College of New York. Garcia is currently on faculty at Parsons and is represented by Lyle Reitzel Art Gallery in Santo Domingo, DR.
