Mia Tarducci was raised in Newport, RI and currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA. She studied Art History at the University of Siena, Italy and minored in an art concentration at Georgetown University where she received her BSL in 1997. A decade later she began pursuing a career as an oil painter.
Since showing her work publicly in 2009, Tarducci has had solo exhibitions each year and has been in group exhibitions. Her work has been selected by jurors from the MoMA, Guggenheim, Brooklyn Museum, MoCA Cleveland, Carnegie Museum of Art, Andy Warhol Museums and Mattress Factory for exhibitions, which include both museum and gallery settings in Pittsburgh, Dallas, and New York City.
Recent notable achievements include being named the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Emerging Artist of the Year in 2014, and winning the Leon A. Arkus Award as part of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh’s 2016 Annual Exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art.
