About Tracy Ferron

We live in difficult times. However, chaos and overwhelm are the handmaidens of transformation.  We need each other. To build a better world, we must come into community and heal personal and collective trauma through dialogue and creative expression.
Tracy Ferron is a multi-media artist focused on the transformative power of art.  Tracy produces art, film and theater through her production company, Pagan Baby.  Her projects are dedicated to exploring injustice and healing trauma through community art-making workshops and public installations.  The goal is to amplify compassion, for self, for others and the planet, and to inspire social change.

With her Life on Earth Art project, Tracy works with the iconography of winged hearts and cages to examine imprisonment and liberation in our society.  She currently has three large cages to tour and over 100 winged hearts that range in size from 3 ft to 15 ft.  These installations have highlighted particular topics of social injustice: the medical experimentation on 1000 children with cerebral palsy at a California mental hospital in the 1950s (Museum of Sonoma County, 2018) and a tribute to over 500 human and earth rights defenders murdered around the globe, 2018-2019 (Museum of Sonoma County, 2019).

Tracy received her Master’s Degree in Engaged Humanities from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Tracy’s interests in social change and storytelling are informed by her two severely mentally ill brothers and her studies of cultural history and film at the University of California, at Berkeley and New York University.  Tracy received a Fulbright Scholar Fellowship to Berlin.

Tracy has presented at Burning Man (2014), the Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies' Conference in Washington D.C. (2017) and at Google (2018).
