Liz Roth is an artist who depicts social concerns in a humorous way ­ her project, America 101, took her to all 50 states to create scenes emphasizing environmental losses as a result of consumerism.
Most recently, she was the Artist-in-Residence at Grand Canyon National Park in June 2011, where she created on-site drawings focusing on the difference between the optical experience and the camera.

Roth has been an artist in residence at the Jentel Artist Foundation (in Wyoming), the Awagami Paper Factory (in Japan), the Kamiyama (Japan) Artists in Residence program, the Wrangel Mountain Center (Alaska) and the Vermont Studio Center. In Kamiyama she completed a painting installation, as well as an outdoor, interactive, collaborative, printmaking/book arts project. 

Her awards include the Wisconsin Arts Board Individual Artist Fellowship, Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation grant for painting and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Grant Art 365.

Her works have been acquired by many national and international collections, including the Walker Museum of Art, the Museu del Joguet in Spain, the Museum of Awa Japanese Paper, and the KAIR Contemporary Art Collection.
