BIO INFO: Associated Projects |
Melissa Shutz holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Baltimore in English with a concentration in Creative Writing.
She, along with a few of her fellow cohort members, created and ran the literary magazine Artichoke Haircut and the accompanying reading series “You’re Allowed” out of Baltimore. Artichoke Haircut won “Best Little Magazine” from the City Paper.
Currently, she is studying at the University of Delaware to receive a second bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. Her portfolio explores the boundaries between representation, realism and identity — or rather, how the identity of an object can affect representation.
Melissa is currently focused on records management and collection planning, and the aesthetic value and presentation of elements of the Collection. Her broader areas of interest include documentary photography, illustration and printmaking. At the DRC, she sits among a wealth of books, which is really the best place to be.
