Christina Ralls is an educator, organizer, and multi-media artist. Ralls received a BA in Visual Arts (Imaging and Digital Arts Track) and a minor in Art History from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and a MA in Community Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art. She has taught in a variety of settings, from college level to after-school programming, with students from ages 2 to 92. Recent community projects she has coordinated include an interactive sculpture entitled Traum Baum (translated as Dream Tree, collaboration with Katharine Better, The Baltimore Museum of Art, Fall 2006), the "Baltimore '68 Riots and Rebirth" Mosaic Monument (University of Baltimore, 2008-2009, installed at the Y of Central Maryland’s Weinberg Center), and The Baltimore Song Project (2009-2010, Central Baltimore). Her individual and collaborative animation, video and public works have been exhibited both locally and internationally. She believes that storytelling through artistic expression can empower persons and communities, and through this process one comes to a better understanding of their own memories, thoughts, and dreams. Ralls is also an avid cyclist, stilt-walker, writer and traveler, and has studied abroad in Germany and Nicaragua.

About this Site

This site serves as my online portfolio. Here you will find video work, animations, public art, photos, teaching documentation, and some writing. As a community artist, much of my work isn't done in isolation, and is usually collaborative or influenced by many. Most of the work here has a story to share. This site went online in September 2010, so please visit often while I continue to add more and mold the site into my home on the web.
