FACULTY> MITCH MILLER
Adjunct Professor, Studio Art
From Oklahoma originally, Mitch’s curiosity about the world brought him to Nepal where he learned to Thanka paint from an old master. Upon his return to the US he pursued an art degree alongside his biology degree from the University of Colorado. In 2000 Mitch received his MFA from the University of Kansas and left the next day for NYC. After many exciting years in New York Mitch had the opportunity to go to Arizona State University free of charge. He recently received a Masters of Landscape Architecture from ASU and is currently designing a public park for an international artist residency program, Stove Works, in Chattanooga, TN. The park is designed to be a sustainable multi-use cultural space and community conduit. Residencies will begin in Summer 2021 and Mitch has been invited to be a groundbreaking resident for the first session.
Socrates Sculpture Park, Pollock-Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Ford Foundation, and Andy Warhol grants have supported Mitch’s work. He exhibits nationally and internationally in galleries, art fairs, and museums. The DUMBO arts festival (NYC), Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (AZ), Doosan Gallery (NYC), Center for Cultural Innovation in San Jose (CA), universities around the country and art fairs around the world have hosted Mitch for presentations on his work.
