This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Abstract painter, photographer, muralist and ceramist Blythe Bohnen was also involved in art education.

Bohnen was born in Evanston, Illinois in 1940.  She attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts where she received her Bachelor’s degree in art in 1962.  In 1967 she obtained her second Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the School of Fine and Applied Art at Boston University.  Five years later, she earned her Master’s degree of Fine Art in painting from Hunter College in New York.

In 1978, Bohnen was awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).  She was also able to serve as the artist-in-residence at Rutgers University with a previous grant from the NEA in 1976.  In 1977 she was featured in “Art Show – Blythe Bohnen” a television show production that aired on WABC-TV.  Bohnen received a commission in 1980 construct a ceramic tile mural for the Record Storage Center at the Library for the Blind in Trenton, New Jersey.  

Solo exhibitions of Bohnen’s work have been held in the United States by institutions such as the A.I.R. Gallery in New York City; Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans, Louisiana; Douglas College, Rutgers University, New Jersey; and Rhode Island University in Providence.  Her artwork has been exhibited abroad at the Artline Gallery at The Hague, Holland; Galerie Mukai in Tokyo, Japan; and the International Cultural Center of Antwerp, Belgium.  Although she has been included in numerous group exhibitions, two of her more significant displays were held in Kassel, Germany and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1977.

Bohnen’s artwork is in the permanent collections at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York; Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; Boston Museum of Fine Art in Massachusetts; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Dallas Museum of Fine Art in Texas; High Museum in Atlanta; Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City; Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York; National Gallery of Art in Osaka, Japan; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
