Sebastienne Mundheim is an interdisciplinary storyteller, installation artist, and educator. She earned her BA and BFA at the University of Pennsylvania in 1990. Wanting to get away from the solitary practice of studio and get out into the world to make work with more clear social impact, Mundheim began creating interdisciplinary community arts programs and events in Philadelphia and New Orleans, designing and implementing parades, installations, and arts-based learning experiences. In 1994, Mundheim began to include performance in her practice. Since then, she has created 22 interdisciplinary performances, performed nationally and internationally. Workshave been commissioned and/or presented by: The Rosenbach Museum and Library, The University of Pennsylvania, Franklin and Marshall College, Keene State University, Vermont Performance Lab, Marlboro College, The Philadelphia Live Arts Festival, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts, The Irish Ministry of Arts and Culture, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Kimmel Center for Performing Arts.
