Laura Brown is a printmaker, book artist, collaborator and teacher. Currently, her work uses the vocabulary of ubiquitous construction signage as a way of investigating social and political upheaval in today's American society. Inspired by everyday experience, she draws inspiration from the most mundane and routine patterns of life.
She holds an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. She has participated in residencies at the Myren Graffikk in Kristiansand, Norway; the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California; Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York. Her work appears in collections at Yale University and the Library of Congress, among others.
Her work has been shown internationally, nationally, and locally, most recently at the Soap Factory in Minneapolis, MN. She teaches at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Augsburg University and is an active member of the print collective Proof Public, which aims to amplify marginalized voices through letterpress printing.
