The 2020 Faculty Biennial presents work reflecting a diverse range of creative research by 38 faculty members teaching during the 2019–2020 academic year in the Wonsook Kim School of Art and the Program in Creative Technologies (including Creative Technologies-affiliated faculty from the School of Music). The artists in the exhibition represent the areas of Studio Art, Graphic Design, Art Education, Art History, and Creative Technologies. Featuring painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, video, ceramics, textiles, glass, wood, metals, sculpture, graphic design, game design, and virtual reality, the exhibition will also include multiple interactive works.
Members of the faculty have exhibited their work nationally and internationally, and have received support from such prestigious entities as the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Fulbright Scholar Program, the National Endowment for the Arts, Cite Internationale des Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
