Nomi Silverman’s work deals with socio-political themes, the outsiders, and the others—those who have lesser voices. She has dealt with, amongst other themes, homelessness, racial violence, Matthew Shepard, Iraq, and most recently, a large body of work on refugees. She works in woodcut, lithography and intaglio, often combining media to create interesting juxtapositions.
She has shown her work in museums and university galleries, as well as art centers. Her work is collected in numerous museums and institutions, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Fairfield University Art Museum, The New York Public Library, the Boston Public Library, the Benton Museum of Art, The Douro Museum in Portugal, the Split Graphic Arts Museum in Croatia, and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Taiwan.
