Carolyn Swiszcz earned a BFA in printmaking at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design 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. Inspired by Miami’s rapidly changing cityscape she began rendering buildings using acrylic paint and various printmaking techniques, stencils and collage. This thread continues through to her recent work. Carolyn’s proclivity for experimentation and bliss-following has also led her to create songs, music videos, and animations. She currently publishes a mail-order zine, Zebra Cat Zebra.
Carolyn’s work has been exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery in New York, Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, and Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston. Her prints have been published by Highpoint Editions in Minneapolis. She is a recipient of the Jerome, McKnight, Bush, and Minnesota State Arts Board artist fellowships.
