::: Meg Mitchell
Born in 1979 when Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” was at the top of the pop charts, Meg’s Mitchell early childhood years were spent listening to the operatic and choral performances of family and playing video games with teenage boys. Mitchell discovered her penchant for artistic expression as a child through theater and dance, then as an adult through photography and sculpture. She received a BFA in Sculpture from the University of South Florida in 2005 and an MFA in New Genres from the University of Maryland College Park in 2008.
Mitchell has shown her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions, at venues such as the Museum for Applied Art in Vienna, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Conner Contemporary, the DC Art Center and the International Waldkunst Zentrum in Germany. Her work has been featured in numerous publications, such as Art Papers, Art in America and the Washington Post. In 2012 she was also awarded a Expanded Artist’s Book grant from Columbia College Chicago for her project in collaboration with Denise Bookwalter, “Rain/fall,” a data driven artist’s book and mobile application.
