Through her work, Olynyk investigates the often-tenuous relationships between human culture, science and the environment. Her work frequently calls upon viewers to expand their awareness of the worlds they inhabit — whether those worlds are their own bodies or the spaces that surround them.
Works by the Sam Fox School’s Patricia Olynyk will be featured in “Some Provocations from Skeptical Inquirers,” a two-person show at The Mishkin Gallery in Manhattan.
From the galleries of New York to the backlots of Hollywood, visual culture in the United States is often defined as coastal and urban. Yet historically, large numbers of artists and designers have emerged from the unique population, landscape and economy of the American Midwest. On April 12 and 13, the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts will investigate Midwestern cultural production with Inland Symposium: CST, the third annual Inland Visual Studies Center symposium.
