In fall 2015, Sue Wrbican's specific sculptures referencing the work of surrealist painter Kay Sage were installed at the Seligmann Center in Sugar Loaf, N.Y., as part of a walking tour providing material for a new photographic experimental documentary project The Eventual Outcome of An Instant. In 2014, she presented her sculptural work “Continue the Temporary and It Becomes Forever” at the Žižek Studies conference at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning. Her article about this work was published in The International Journal of Žižek Studies in 2015. In 2013, she was an artist in residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida, where she collaborated extensively with acrobat Arnaud Caizergues on the hurricane-damaged beaches of North Captiva Island. Images of this work will be published in the Fall 2015 edition of So To Speak-A Feminist Journal of Language and Art.

In 2009, she was an associate artist with Rineke Dijkstra at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, funded by a grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation Residency Fellowship. In 2008, she completed a four-year collaborative project with Mary Carothers entitled “The Frozen Car” at Michigan Technological University.
