Sculptor Frances Whitehead (born 1953) is concerned with science, classification and death. She makes large, conceptual installations and often works with atypical art materials, such as plants. The artist draws on fresh graphic sources, finds new ways to work an old materials, and engages her audience with paradoxes. She currently teaches sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Whitehead earned a BFA from East Carolina University and an MFA from Northern Illinois University.
