Nancy Genn, Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership.

Ms. Genn’s mother was a painter and served as her inspiration to become an artist. It was not until after she graduated high school that she began exhibiting her work, going on to attend the San Francisco Art Institute at the University of California. In the following years, Ms. Genn’s career took off to new heights. She has since been featured in a number of one-woman shows, including at the Takada Gallery in San Francisco in 1999, the Vessel Gallery in Oakland in 2012, and the Palazzo Ferro Fini in Italy in 2018. She considers the latter to be among the highlights of her career, alongside the placement of one of her sculptures at the center of Cowell College’s campus. Further, she co-authored the work, “Architecture from Within,” in 2018. Ms. Genn’s most recent exhibition was in 2019 at the Museum of Modern Art in Venice, Italy.

As a testament to her success, Ms. Genn has earned a number of awards, the first of which was the Ellen Branston Award, which she obtained in 1952. In 1968, she was the recipient of the Honor Award from the HUD, which followed up her earlier Phelan Award from the De Young Museum. From 1978 until 1979, she earned the title of the U.S./Japan Creative Arts Fellow. In recognition of her accomplishments, Ms. Genn is featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in the World, and Who’s Who of American Women.
