About the artists

Leonardo Drew was born in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1961. He grew up in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and attended Parsons School of Design and earned his BFA from Cooper Union in New York in 1985. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His works are in major museum collections, and in 2020 he had a solo exhibition at the NCMA that included his first major outdoor project, City in the Grass.

Ursula von Rydingsvard was born to Polish parents in Deensen, Germany, in 1942. From 1945 to 1950, she and her family lived in eight different refugee encampments for displaced Polish nationals. The family immigrated to the US in 1950, settling in Plainville, Connecticut. She earned her MFA from Columbia University in 1975. Von Rydingsvard currently lives and works in New York City. Her works are in numerous private and public collections, including the NCMA.
