Lynda Monick-Isenberg is a visual artist and educator on equal terms. She has exhibited her work in group and solo exhibitions locally and nationally and has installed more than 100 large-scale tapestry commissions nationwide. Her work is included in private collections and permanent collections of the Minnesota History Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Walker Art Center, and Weisman Art Museum.

Her most recent artwork is rooted in the principles of social justice and environmentalism, raises questions of equity, and designs opportunity to address change. Collaboration as both idea and method has become core to both her art and teaching practice. She has recently engaged in the Form+Content Gallery exhibitions Dialogue on the Wall, Unbundling the Housing Crisis, Excavation of Zone 5, and Nurture Nature, in addition to Intersections at MCAD.

As an arts integration education consultant for fifteen years, she has participated in the development and implementation of community based teaching artist residencies throughout Minneapolis Public Schools, St. Paul Public Schools, and the Perpich Center for Arts Education. She has been a WARM core member, a founding member of Form+Content Gallery, and actively participates in the arts community in the Twin Cities.
