Sean Connaughty’s socially-engaged art projects address anthropogenic impacts on the global ecology and humanity’s place within that system. By working with communities and agencies governing our public spaces and infrastructures, he uses public art as a catalyst for mitigating damaging behaviors. Recently, Connaughty received a 2017 Forecast Public Art development grant for his Lake Hiawatha Visioning Project, a 2018 McKnight fellowship and in 2016 had a solo exhibition at the Weisman Art Museum featuring his collaborative project Anthropocenic Midden Survey – Mississippi River. A graduate of both the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Savannah College of Art and Design, Connaughty is a lecturer in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
