Erin Cunningham (b. 1979 Honolulu, HI) is a Texas based artist living and working in Austin. She received her BFA with a focus in metalwork from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2003 and her MFA from the University of Texas in Austin in 2007. Her sculpture work uses material combinations, such as cast iron, and the female figure to explore dualities of masculine and feminine, disposable and precious, fragility and strength. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, most recently at the Metropolitan Art Museum in Tokyo. She was selected to curator the Art on the Green show in Wichita Falls TX, which was an outdoor show featuring all women sculptors. She has been an artist in residence at BAER Art Center in Hofsos, Iceland as well as Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark in Birmingham, Alabama.
Erin is currently an instructor at Texas State University and at the Art School at The Contemporary Austin. She is one of the founding members of ICOSA Collective, an artist run exhibition space in Austin TX.
