Syd Ginsberg


Behind The Artist


Sculptor Syd Ginsberg was born July 4th, 1928 in Brooklyn, NY. After studying art at Washington Irving High School Ginsberg, age 18, furthered her Art studies at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Because she needed to earn her living by day, Syd attended Cooper Union at night. Many of her fellow classmates were WWII veterans and Syd credits her professional and personal relationships with her “older” classmates with enhancing her creative expression and growth. Syd studied under notable artists such as sculptors Milton Hebald and George Kratina, painters Byron Thomas and Morris Kantor and printmaker Bob Blackburn.

While raising her family in Croton, NY, Syd continued sculpting, showing and being involved in the NY arts community. In 1988, Syd fulfilled her dream of living in Mexico, settling in San Miguel de Allende. In 2018, she returned to The US and settled in Siler City, NC.

Ms. Ginsberg’s work has appeared at The Hudson River Museum, The Art Gallery of Sarah Lawrence College, The Greenwich Art Barn, The NC Arts Incubator and many other galleries in NY and Austin, TX. During her time in San Miguel de Allende, Ms. Ginsberg’s work was shown at Instituto Allende, Galleria Libertad and Galeria Atenea.
