Nancy Goldring (1945- ) is an American artist working in New York. Raised in St. Louis, Missouri where her father was a professor of cardiology at Washington University, Goldring attended Smith College, receiving a BA in art history in 1967. She spent a year in Italy on a Fulbright fellowship and was later enrolled in the MFA program at New York University. She has been teaching at Montclair State University since the early 1970s. In 1994, Goldring traveled in India and Sri Lanka on another Fulbright fellowship.
In 1969, Goldring co-founded SITE (Sculpture in the Environment) with several other artists interested in developing public art projects. Within a few years, Goldring moved on to explore other forms of artmaking and subsequently developed a technique she calls "foto-projection" which combines photography, drawing, models, and slide projection. She is influenced by travel, location, memory.
