Emily Sullivan Smith is an Assistant Professor and the Foundations Coordinator at the University of Dayton’s Department of Art and Design. Having received an MFA from Kent State in printmaking, her studio practice is interdisciplinary and is constructed from
a hybrid of printmaking and sculpture. Her work focuses on various permeations of the effects that human behavior have on the natural world. A quote from John Muir, “When one tugs at a single thing in nature he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” has been at the center of the research.
