Heidi Jeub is a visual artist, bookbinder, and public artist from Little Falls, Minnesota. She is also the creator of the Tiny School of Art & Design, a portable studio that travels to community events, building community through the foundations of art and design.
In 1999, she received her B.A. in Studio Art, later receiving her Masters of Professional Studios in Arts & Cultural Leadership, both at the University of Minnesota. She has shared her art form with schools and communities as a teaching artist since 2003, and has been selected to be on teaching rosters with Compas, Inc., VSA-Minnesota, Lifetime Arts, and Central Minnesota Arts Board. She has received several grants for her professional growth, as well as the Emerging Artist Award (CMAB) and the Outstanding Contributor to the Arts of Morrison County with Five Wings Arts Council. Her work in Public Art includes the Sartell Paper Mill Project, Trunks (Little Falls Convention & Visitors Bureau), and the Boys & Girls Club Bike Rack Project (Little Falls).
From 2010 - 2014, she was the executive director of Visual Arts Minnesota. With over 12 years experience in nonprofit administration, she has run several juried exhibits, facilitated community conversations around the arts, and served on several grant panels. She has been part of the organization of regional events such as the St. Cloud Art Crawl, inter organizational residencies in Brainerd, and the recent Small But Noteworthy art event in Little Falls.
I use painting, bookbinding, collage, and public art to explore challenging community-based, systematic issues. My goal as a multidisciplinary artist is to engage communities by offering an accessible entry point into visual language through deep exploration, conversation, and reflection.
