Fall Artist in Residence: Dan Falco

Residency Term: Sep 1 – Nov 30

Magnetic Goat by Dan Falco

Dan Falco will be working on a series of prints investigating the physical and psychological changes that occur in humans and animals due to the modification of our environment. With increasing advancement in science and technology, we begin to loose track of what is natural and what is not. Dan looks to address issues of hybridization, mutation, and modification, popular culture.

Falco received his MFA in Printmaking from Northern Illinois University in 2006, and has since been teaching art at the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg. He has most recently had solo shows at Art and Design Gallery, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Lee E Dulgar Gallery in South Holland, Illinois, and Morton College, Cicero.
