WESLEY FAWCETT CREIGH

Wesley Fawcett Creigh lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. In 2008 she completed her Bachelor’s Degree at Prescott College in the self-designed major of Public Art with an Emphasis on Social Impact. Since this time she has engaged in numerous social practice projects, two of which were funded by the Tucson Pima Arts Council through their P.L.A.C.E. Initiative grant program. Her work at this time aimed to bring the arts into community spaces, foster a sense of creative placemaking, and bring overlooked issues into the forefront of a broader community dialogue. Most recently, she has employed animation and multi-media installation for her artwork and received a grant in 2016 from the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona for an animation and installation project that examines the complexity of violence on the US/Mexico border. As an arts collaborator, she frequently works for theater companies throughout the Southwest as a set designer and scenic painter. Currently, she teaches scene design, stage lighting, theater graphics, and stagecraft at Pima Community College. Her work has often focused on sharing personal and community narratives as a means of promoting social justice for individuals and groups. Bringing these narratives to the forefront of the public’s awareness fosters social and political movement that addresses these societal inequalities and injustices. Contributions to the larger discourse are, in turn, contributions to progress.
