Hannah Reid Merchant is an artist currently living in Portland ME. She graduated from the Maine College of Art in the Spring of 2013, with a BFA focusing in Woodworking and Furniture Design and minoring in Public Engagement. She is interested in how artists can impact positive change with their community and strives to do so herself. In addition to her studio practice, she is also involved in community projects with organizations in the Portland area, like Cultivating Community. She has volunteered and worked with the organization throughout the past 4 years designing and constructing projects like a recipe book for their summer youth programs, a new office sign, and a mobile farmstand called “The Grow Cart”. The farmstand will launch in the summer 2014 and will broaden the Portland community’s access to fresh, local vegetables.
