Lauren Strohacker’s work emphasizes the non-human in an increasingly human-centric world. Born in Ohio in 1983, she received a BFA (2006) from The Ohio State University and an MFA (2011) from Arizona State University.
Strohacker’s new genre public art practice routinely collaborates with both local and national wildlife conservation organizations. Conceptually, Strohacker’s focus on wildlife and public space reflects larger contexts of ecology, conservation, and politics. As Nic Wiesinger, of the Arts Beacon writes, “Lauren Strohacker is an environmental artist who creates artwork that challenges our beliefs about the landscape and animals that are all around us. She is an educator both of art and of our environment, enlisting her video installations and site specific public art to inform the public about the struggles of indigenous creatures.”
