Joshua GrahamPast AIR
Joshua Graham is a Salt Lake City based artist and educator. He is currently an adjunct professor of art education at the University of Utah, where he teaches in both the College of Fine Art as well as the College of Undergraduate Studies. Josh received his formal art training from the Arts Students League of New York, Brigham Young University, and most recently, the University of Utah, where he received his master’s degree in fine art and community-based art education. Josh has been shown throughout the United States and internationally. Artist-in-Residence programs remain central to his practice, taking him into national parks, contemporary art museums, and ancient castles. His post-studio practice is a direct result of over 10 years of experience working with high school students at the Walden School of Liberal Arts, a Title 1 public school in Provo, UT. It was at Walden, amongst a small, dedicated, community of teachers and students, where Josh developed his teaching and artistic philosophy – the notion that every human retains the possibility to realize their artistic potential, becoming an active participant in shaping and redefining their world.
