Blair most recently completed a one-year appointment in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China as the Executive Artistic Director & Curator of YZ Creative Art Center where she oversaw the development of the largest glass center in Asia. She worked with architects, engineers and vendors to design, equip and supply a multi-disciplinary art program. She also established the visiting artists program.
Her work has been commissioned by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Oliver Stone’s The Doors Project, the Franklin Mint, and the United States Olympic Equestrian Museum.
