Sigrid Burton ’69 is an artist known for her paintings and mixed media works on paper, and, in particular, for her use of color. Sigrid credits Westridge and her teachers with instilling a lifelong love of learning and travel, and commitment to social justice and community.

Since the mid-1970s, Sigrid’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. In 1977 she received the Richard and Hilda Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, given to a young artist of distinction who has not yet had due

recognition. Her works are included in numerous public and corporate collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as at Westridge.
