Meryl Blinder is a Boston resident with strong ties to New Jersey. She completed her MFA in 1999 from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University after doing her undergraduate work at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture in Philadelphia. She was born in New York City and first moved to Princeton, NJ in the 1970s when her husband was an undergraduate at Princeton University.
In New Jersey, she worked for the Michael Graves Architects from 1989 – to 1997 designing colors for projects such as the Disney Dolphin and Swan Hotels, and the Denver Public Library. Her color approach is still very much influenced by her work with Mr. Graves. Before living in Princeton, Ms. Blinder lived in New Haven, CT where she worked as a courtroom sketch artist for television news. In 2001 and 2002, she was invited to create installations for World Aids Day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She is currently an adjunct professor at the Wentworth Institute of Technology where she teaches Color, Design, and Drawing.
Ms. Blinder has shown her work extensively including exhibits at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Danforth Museum, and the Brooklyn Waterfront Coalition. She regularly shows her work at Gallery Jupiter in Little Silver, NJ, which is owned by her sister Judi Trammell.
