M Acuff

Professor of Art

M Acuff hails from the Midwest where they received their B.A. in Art from Augustana College, and their M.A. and M.F.A. in Sculpture and Intermedia from The University of Iowa. In recent years Professor Acuff has exhibited their work nationally in group and solo exhibitions across the country at venues such as The Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Washington & Jefferson College, Bellevue College, the Pendleton Art Center, AIR Gallery, and the Attleboro Museum of Art. Professor Acuff has been the recipient of an Artist Trust GAP Grant, a Mississippi Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship, and has been awarded fellowships at many artist residencies throughout the United States including the Jentel Foundation, Ragdale, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Playa and the Brush Creek Foundation. In 2012 they were a resident at the VCCA’s Moulin Au Nef program in Auvillar, France. Acuff’s work is multi-media in nature, marrying ersatz images and industrially produced commercial objects with organic and hand-made sculptural elements. Their materials range widely from neon to porcelain, steel to Styrofoam, articulating a very tenuous connection to the natural world, and the precariousness of the environmental and social realties we face.
