Event Details

Join Girls’ Club and Minnesota-based artist Carolyn Swiszcz for a public artist talk introducing her work, her creative processes, techniques and ongoing projects.

Working in paint, print making and more recently video and animation, Swiszcz skewers the mundane. Her cunning attention to quotidian details imprint upon the viewer the unmistakable ambiance of ordinary places.

Born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Carolyn Swiszcz moved to Minnesota to attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where she earned a BFA in 1994. In the late 90’s she spent three winters in Miami Beach on a fellowship from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (now Young Arts Foundation). Time spent among Miami Beach’s faded apartment buildings inspired Swiszcz to take an interest in buildings and public spaces.

Swiszcz’s work has been exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, The Drawing Center, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Miyako Yoshinaga in New York, Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston, and The Corcoran Gallery of Art. She lives in West Saint Paul, MN with her husband (photographer Wilson Webb) and their daughter.

Talk is free and open to the public. Free parking available.
