Anne Minich is a mixed-media visual artist whose work is in numerous public collections.

Since the 1960s, Minich has been making art that engages with the ideas of feminism and the women’s rights movement. She depicts women’s bodies in a stylized, sometimes unsettling manner that makes the viewer aware of the objectification of women as sex objects.

Born in Philadelphia, Minich attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia. Her work has been shown broadly and has been included in numerous exhibitions that explore questions of gender difference and feminism.
