Art in the Lobby: Samantha Fein

Hotel Congress is thrilled to present the work of artist Samantha Fein! Her artwork will be available for viewing and purchase in the Hotel Congress lobby from May 8th to June 4th.


Samantha Fein is an interdisciplinary artist born and raised in Tucson, Arizona.  She utilizes the visual form to create pieces that address contemporary psychosocial narratives. Her artwork incorporates elements of ethnography, nonlinear storytelling, magical realism, and absurdist humor. Rather than replicating the literalism of the physical world, each piece gives expression to a uniquely individualized reality.

She holds a Master of Fine Arts from the Mount Royal School of Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She received her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and studied abroad at universities in Cuba and Argentina. She has been awarded a Fulbright research grant to the Philippines, a fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center, and was the James Rosenquist artist in residence at North Dakota State University.
