A visiting artist with the University of Toledo Department of Art, Nancy Mitchnick’s paintings are emotional, strong, and sometimes humorous. An innovative teacher and a recipient of multiple awards and fellowships, Mitchnick says that her “new paintings depict disintegrating houses, and small industrial buildings, that stand as monuments to their former communities. Though politically relevant, this body of work (“Detroit: dismantling cities in Middle America”) is a love-poem to abandoned neighborhoods.” This artist lecture was presented by the University of Toledo School of Visual and Performing Arts and was hosted by the Toledo Museum of Art.
