Monica Sheets is a mixed media artist who works in the public sphere with non-traditional, temporary projects. She was born in Toledo, Ohio and received a BFA in photography from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Since moving to Minneapolis, she has created conceptual projects that attempt to bridge the gap between the arts and peoples’ lives.
She has received grants from FORECAST Public Artworks and the Minnesota State Arts Board. She teaches photography for the Banfill Locke Center for the Arts and IFP/MN. She currently uses tattoos as public interactive art in her web-based project Surface Marks.
