Anoka-Ramsey Art Faculty Receives Printmaking Award

November 05, 2008
Anoka-Ramsey Community College award-winning art faculty member Laura Migliorino continues to garner accolades for her photography series, The Hidden Suburbs: A Portrait, with the recent win of the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art Purchase Award prize from the Minnesota National Print Biennial.
Egret Street "Egret Street," (shown) a photograph by Anoka-Ramsey Community College Photography faculty member, Laura E. Migliorino, is one of a series titled, The Hidden Suburbs: A Portrait which was recognized with the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art Purchase Award prize from the Minnesota National Print Biennial showing at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery in Minneapolis.

The Biennial, organized by the University of Minnesota's Department of Art and the Katherine E. Nash Gallery, showcases the vitality and evolving nature of printmaking today. The national juried exhibition displayed printmaking in all forms and media, from traditional 2-D to installation and sculptural works.

Directed by Jenny Schmid, assistant professor in the University of Minnesota's Department of Arts printmaking area, The Biennial received submissions from 354 artists representing 35 States. Ninety works by 56 artists were selected for the exhibition.

Following the purchase by the Weisman Museum, Migliorino joined renowned architect Teddy Cruz at Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh to discuss their respective work inspired by suburbia at the end of October. Both Migliorino and Cruz were invited to display their work in Worlds Away exhibit at the Walker Art Museum in Minnesota earlier this year.

About Migliorino's Series: The Hidden Suburbs: A Portrait
The Hidden Suburbs: A Portrait photography series by Anoka-Ramsey photography faculty member, Laura E. Migliorino examines urban and suburban sprawl and the ex-burbs, which are an ever-growing aspect of the American landscape.

Migliorino says the series of portraits seeks to reveal the diversity that exists in the outer-ring suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul while dispelling the stereotype of the suburbanite and challenging assumptions about suburban residents.

Her interest in exploring the suburbs evolved over the 20 years that she has commuted from her home in South Minneapolis to her teaching job at the college in Coon Rapids. Through the years, Migliorino says she has witnessed farmland disappear and be replaced with housing so uniform and controlled it is often difficult to distinguish one from another.

Migliorino's work is currently on display in the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Coon Rapids Campus Great River Gallery and the Weisman Museum.
