She has had solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria in New York; the Aspen Art Museum; and the MAK Center in Los Angeles. Grinnan has been included in many group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial; Real World: The Dissolving Space of Experience at Modern Art Oxford; and The Artist’s Museum at MOCA, Los Angeles. Her work is included in collections at MOCA, the Hammer Museum, and LACMA, and she has been awarded a Guggenheim and a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship.
