David Schulz moved to Walla Walla from Brooklyn, New York (with his wife, faculty member Jessica Cerullo), where he worked as a designer for magazines such as UsWeekly, ArtForum, and Travel + Leisure for nearly 20 years. He also has an art practice that is centered around self-publishing print and digital matter. His works are collected by the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and C/O Berlin, among others. In 2013, he received an O'Donnell grant from Whitman, which he used to complete a book and teach a workshop on material interventions in Whitman's archives. Since moving to Walla Walla, David and Jessica have a daughter, Valia, who loves to dance to The Smiths in her living room.
