Working across media, Mo Neal mines art history, popular culture, and personal narrative to sate her fascination with movement and precarious spaces, both physical and social.

A recipient of the NEA Sculpture Award, Neal currently teaches drawing and sculpture at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln.

Johnson earned his BFA from the University of North Dakota and his MFA from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln. His work has been featured in exhibitions at venues including Manifest Gallery, Cincinnati; Rosalux Gallery, Minneapolis; and the Sioux City Art Center, Iowa. Johnson currently teaches at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln and Nebraska Wesleyan University.

Through 3D printing, animation, programming, sculpture, and sound, among many other outlets, Jamie Burmeister explores his conscious experience of the world.
