Robert A. McCann is a Midwest-based artist and educator. Born and raised in the Ozarks of southwest Missouri, he received an MFA in Painting from Indiana University in 2001 and subsequently pursued creative practice in Germany as a Fulbright scholar. Since that time his paintings have frequently dealt with the potential for metaphors in our byzantine mass media culture, and with the overwriting of epic and intimate events in the particular artifice of painting. McCann’s recent venues of solo exhibition include the University of Arkansas Galleries in Little Rock, the Grand Rapids Art Museum, and the Ormond Memorial Art Museum in Florida. He currently shows his work with Amos Eno Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. McCann is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art, Art History & Design at Michigan State University, where he leads the Foundations Area and teaches in painting.
