Artists’ Salon

January 18th, 2023

 Art discourse is an important part of the cultural community, sharing a space to vocalize ideas and challenging oneself to go beyond self imposed barriers has the potential for growth in practice and in connection to other artists.

Co-Hosts Biographies:

California native, Jillian Bruschera is an interdisciplinary artist and arts-activist, who creates works in visual art, writing, public installation, body performance, and social practice. As founder and proprietor of The Mobile Mill, she travels teaching the art of hand papermaking. She holds BAs in Studio Art and Visual Communications from Loyola University Chicago and a MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago, where she also served as Adjunct Faculty in the Center for Book and Paper Arts.

Michael LaHood is an interdisciplinary artist whose inquiry focuses on how we interact as individuals, and how those granular interactions accrue and take on life of their own. Fire, biorhythms, interactivity, and the nature of epiphanies are a few topical probes for him in that pursuit. He has a BA in Human Biology and an MA in Media Studies from Stanford University and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Columbia College Chicago.
