PAFA is pleased to welcome artist Micah Danges to campus for the Spring 2020 Visiting Artists Program series.
PAFA's Visiting Artists Program is a student-run program that brings a roster of local, national and international artists to campus for lectures, critiques, and workshops. The program exposes students and the public to a range of artistic approaches and fosters discussion about contemporary art and ideas.
Micah Danges’ work hovers between image and object, pushing the limit of what a photograph can be. He uses optical distortions that create abstract scenes from everyday items and places, in a distinctive merging of materials and process. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Abington Arts Center, the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial, Cabrini College and Vox Populi Gallery and in group shows at High Tide, Redline, The Michener Art Museum, Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery, The Print Center and Fleisher/Ollman Gallery. Danges is a recipient of a 2012 Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, a 2013 Wind Challenge Grant from the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial and was named a 2015 Fellow by The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage.
