Early life and education[edit]

Career[edit]

Associated with the Cass Corridor artists working in Detroit in the 1960s through 1980s, her works in the 1970s-1980s are small scale reliefs, rectangular in format, and constructed of layers of organic materials. Later works (1990s onward) are notable for their increased size and curvilinear forms.[1] In 1977, she was a Guest Lecturer for Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The next year, Carr worked as a Painting Coordinator for Ox Bow Summer Workshop in Saugatuck, Michigan. The following year she was a Visiting Artist at Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Indiana.
