The University of Arizona School of Art welcomes visiting professors Erin DiGiovanni and Danielle Jones — both recent master’s alums — for the 2022-23 school year.
DiGiovanni (MFA ’20) will teach classes in 2D, while Jones (MFA ’21) will be leading the charge in First Year Experience. Both have been adjunct instructors at the School of Art.
A contemporary artist with experience in drawing, printmaking and the building of objects, DiGiovanni is from Rockford, Illinois, and earned her BA in Visual Arts from Northern Illinois University.
In her art, DiGiovanni said she challenges traditional values and customs of American consumerism and culture by subtly shifting the representation of routine visuals.
Jones, from New Orleans, is a visual artist working in mixed media. From immersive installation to intricate works made of paper, Jones said she explores forms in transition through her relationship with materials and methods while addressing intersections of psychological and physical conflicts.
At the School of Art, Jones received two Medici Scholar project grants, a Helen Gross award and the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant award. She received her BA in Art form Southeastern Louisiana University.
