Our first Artist in Residence was Rebecca Kautz!

Rebecca Kautz is an interdisciplinary artist. The foundation of her art practice is in painting and drawing. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin Madison and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

Trained as an artist in Chicago at the turn of the twenty-first century, her work connects to Surrealism, Art & Activism, and Expressionism. Kautz’s imagery stems from her rural upbringing, family, art history, and critical observations of American culture.

Kautz is currently a Lecturer of Art at University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lives in Sun Prairie.
