    Amy Franceschini is a San Francisco based artist whose practice spans drawing, sculpture, design, education, public art, and gardening. She is concerned with notions of community, sustainable environment, and the relations between humans and nature. In 1995 she founded Futurefarmers, a collective of international artists, scientists, farmers, designers, architects and engineers working across disciplines with a common interest in deconstructing systems in order to reconfigure their principles and initiate change. Amy was a 2010 Guggenheim Fellow and her work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center in Istanbul, Turkey, ZKM (Center for Art and Media) in Karlsruhe, Germany, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
