Simons cut her teeth on art activism as a member of the Maine- based Beehive Design Collective. For over a decade, she traveled around the U.S. presenting the Beehive’s graphic works to communities in struggle and using arts-based education in social movement contexts. Now based in Pittsburgh, Simons works as a cultural organizer, illustrator, and graphic designer. Simons will be Artist-in-Residence February 15- April 5, 2018. Her residency project is supported by the Warren Memorial Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
