artist bio

Maggie Sasso received her MFA from the University of Wisconisn - Madison in 2010 and her BFA from Murray State University in 2006. She is the recipient of a 2015 Mary L. Nohl Fellowship for Individual Emerging Artists. She teaches at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and serves as a Board of Trustees Secretary for the Furniture Society.

Sasso works collaboratively on projects such as the grant funded Mobile Museum of Material Culture, which was featured in the documentary “Blink Again”, a permanent installation for the Madison Children’s Museum and at collaborative events such as the Emma International Collaboration and the Hawaii Artist Collaboration. She was a visiting artist and instructor at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, which culminated in a solo exhibition at the Doppler PDX gallery in Portland.

artist statement

Sasso has created numerous rigorously conceptual bodies of work that reflect her formal craft education. She has the uncanny ability to find double-entendre in the least likely of places. Recently, her work examines the language and history of flags, maps and maritime culture. By interrogating specific objects, unpacking and twisting their meaning back on themselves, she comes to discover the unique stories they each hold, and the ways in which they succeed and fail in imparting their stories to us.
