Susanna Crum: Alumna Talk and Lunch

AAP Connect Fearless Creatives Series

Becoming an artist is one thing, being a fearless creative is another. Join Susanna Crum (B.F.A. '08) and hear why entrepreneurial drive, resourcefulness, and grit are so important when building any type of creative career.

Crum conducts research-based projects that investigate maps and printed ephemera as social artifacts at the intersection of past, present, and future. She uses processes like cyanotype, lithography, and video to merge digital and analog technologies and emphasize print media's roles in maintaining relationships — and erasures — between people and place. Crum received her M.F.A. from the University of Iowa, and her B.F.A. from Cornell AAP. Her work has been featured in international and national exhibitions at venues such as Museu do Douro in Portugal; Nicole Longnecker Gallery in Houston; 1078 Gallery in Chico, California; Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center in Cincinnati; the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville; and the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai. Since 2015, she has taught printmaking at Indiana University Southeast and currently serves as president of the Mid America Print Council. Crum is associate director and cofounder of Calliope Arts, a shared printmaking workspace in Louisville.

Lunch will be provided.
