Mike Hoyt

born 1970 in Northfield, currently resides in Minneapolis.

1994 BFA Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Since 1995 numerous group and solo exhibitions in US

For over twenty years Hoyt has been producing, managing, and directing arts-based community development projects and youth development programs, while making art in and with his South Minneapolis community.
Although his formal training is in painting and drawing, his work has evolved to take the form of interactive sculptural installations and situations in which public participation is a key component. Creating and facilitating unique shared experiences that connect diverse and often nontraditional art audiences drives his art practice.

PROJECT:
Although much of my current work is place based, I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to engage in a series of more personal work exploring diaspora and the personal and cultural impacts of ambiguous loss. During my residency in Salzburg I will be working on a series of drawings, paintings, and exploring the incorporation of time based hand rendered digital media into my creative practice.
