Witt Siasoco

Artist

Minneapolis, Minnesota
Witt Siasoco has been actively engaged in the intersection of the arts and civic life through a variety of roles – as artist, graphic designer, and arts educator. In 2013, Siasoco was selected by the City of Minneapolis and Intermedia Arts for Creative Citymaking, a collaboration between artists and City planners to develop creative solutions for addressing long-term issues facing Minneapolis. In 2015 Siasoco was invited to create artwork for Forecast Public Art’s Richfield Artist Resident Engagement (RARE), a year-long residency engaging Richfield residents in conversations about how arts can play a role in their everyday lives. Last year, This Home is Not for Sale, Siasoco's collaboration with poet Molly Van Avery, received a "Best Public Art Award" from the Americans for the Arts. In addition to his art practice, Siasoco works at the Minneapolis Institute of Art as a Studio and Community Art Associate.
