Long, a professor of metalsmithing and jewelry design in the School of Art and Design in the College of Arts and Sciences, is an internationally recognized metalsmith with more than 300 exhibitions and 24 books that include her work. Her groundbreaking work in the 1980s with rediscovered techniques of marriage of metals pushed the limits of what was being created and placed form, sculptural considerations and concept over utility.
She joined IU in 1983 and is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts Craftsman fellowships and two Indiana Arts Commission master fellowships. In 2007 she was awarded the NICHE Magazine Art Educator of the Year Award, in partial recognition for her establishing the metals program in IU as one of the leading programs in the nation.
