Berman uses recycled tin cans to construct her artwork ranging from jewelry, sculpture to installations of social commentary. Sculptures from the last thirty years include a commentary on the roles of women in our society, environmental issues, the influence of advertising in our consumer society and critique on the impact of standardized testing on education. Berman’s work has been shown throughout the United States, and in Europe and Africa. Her work is included in the permanent collections of fifteen museums including: The Jewish Museum, NY, Jüdisches Museum in Berlin, Germany, the Detroit Institute of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Harriete lives in California where she fills many roles as a mother, daughter, wife, gardener, exercise instructor, indentured servant to many volunteer activities and domestic goddess, (just kidding.)
