Daria Sandburg is a Pittsburgh-based multi-media artist. Using found historical objects, sculpted metal work, fused glass, and narrative brought meaningfully together to form a new coherent whole, Sandburg gives form to time and memory by visually creating a quiet glimpse into a worn, personal history. Sandburg's objects are not meant to be perceived in isolation from her artistic process. The materials she selects are intended to awaken within the viewer the value of daily experience and the connection between the universal and the individual organically. Her assemblage works contain hidden treasures. Open a jar to find a pendant, unravel fabric to find hidden text. Sandburg fosters imagination by creating a participatory experience between her artwork and the viewer.


Born in Rock Island Illinois, Sandburg was the co-founder of Bohemia Gallery in Tucson Arizona where she curated exhibitions while making her own artwork. In 2012, she moved to Pittsburgh for her residency exhibition, In Her Own Words, at Borelli-Edwards Galleries. In the 2013 35th Annual Frank Sticks Exhibit at Glenn Eure Gallery in Nags Head North Carolina, Sandburg's artwork received top honors with the Best of Show Award. In 2014, Sandburg's artwork was selected to appear in the Lions Gate upcoming motion picture The Last Witch Hunter, which will be released this October. In the summer of 2015, Sandburg took to the streets of Pittsburgh with her self-initiated public project, Baggage Claim, an artistic community experience of sharing stories, burning up the drek, letting go, and using hope to fuel new possibilities.
