Susan O’Malley


After hearing the news of Susan O’Malley’s sudden passing, it seems as appropriate as ever to share her work: colorful, honest and direct reminders to communicate and love — and pause to be grateful.

SUSAN O’MALLEY is a San Francisco based artist and curator. She uses simple and recognizable tools of engagement—offering a Pep Talk, distributing flyers in a neighborhood’s mailbox, hanging inspirational posters—to offer entry into an understood, and sometimes humorous, interaction of everyday life. O’Malley received her BA from Stanford University in 1999, and her MFA from California College of the Arts with a focus in Social Practice. She has participated in programs and exhibitions at Romer Young Gallery, Southern Exposure, Hardware Store Gallery, CCA, Mission 17, Curiosity Shoppe, The Lab, Headlands, and the SJICA..
