Meredith Leich is a painter, animator, and videomaker, whose work explores the nature of cities, place-based histories, and climate change.

Born and raised in Boston, Meredith has made her home in Berlin, Brooklyn, Jaffa, San Francisco, and now Chicago. She is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA in Film, Video, New Media, and Animation, 2017) and also has degrees from Swarthmore College and the San Francisco Art Institute.  Her climate change-based collaboration with glaciologist Andrew Malone was awarded a 2015-16 Arts, Science & Culture Initiative Grant from the University of Chicago and her resulting video “Scaling Quelccaya” won second prize at the Deutsche Bank 2017 Macht Kunst competition.

Meredith lectures in the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation department at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and has taught students of all ages in continuing studies programs in Chicago and San Francisco.

She is available for commissioned painting work.
