Chicago Tribune art columnist Lori Waxman praised the work of Nancy Lu Rosenheim, an instructor at National Louis University, in her column, “The Best of 2015 in Chicago Visual Art.”

The columnist had kind words for Rosenheim’s installation Swallow City at the Hyde Park Art Center.

Huffington Post columnist Gail Vida Hamburg wrote more extensively about Rosenheim, explaining how Rosenheim had a revelation when she saw trees overtaking and wrapping themselves around the columns of a temple in Cambodia. That inspired her to explore, in her art, nature’s tendency to take over the manmade.

ArtSlant Chicago also ran a review of Rosenheim’s installation by S. Nicole Lane, and Maria Girgenti wrote about Rosenheim’s work in New City.

Finally, Comp Art and Design magazine published an extensive interview with Rosenheim, along with many photos of her work.
