Emily Hoisington (MFA/Minneapolis College of Art and Design) uses printmaking, painting, drawing, papermaking, and bookmaking in imaginative explorations of urban ecosystems. She’s interested in capturing the sensory experience of the natural and built environment, as part of the larger question “What is it like to be human in this place and in this community?” She received the MCAD collegiate fellowship at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and the Jerome Emerging Printmaker's Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in 2008, and was Artist in Residence at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in 2016. She received a 2018 Neighborhood Honor Roll Award for the painting and organizing of a community street mural and wayfinding project at Aldine pedestrian bridge in Saint Paul. Her work is included in public and private collections and she has exhibited both nationally and internationally. She teaches at Saint Paul College, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
