Ron Longsdorf, Adjunct Faculty

Ron Longsdorf, (born in Greensburg, PA) is an artist, educator and independent curator. Although Longsdorf has training in sculpture and building, he considers himself a curator of objects and materials, His body of work combines various elements of sculpture, installation, video, audio, and performance. Ron is a builder at heart. He works with building materials, furniture, domestic objects, and everyday materials to investigate the emotion of personal relationships tied to the materials and objects. Longsdorf’s work offers a different perspective on the everyday, trying to understand who and how we are. As an artist it is his goal to generate this conversation to learn more about himself and the world around him. Ron holds an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Delaware and a BFA in Sculpture from Pennsylvania State University. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, including, Delaware; Pennsylvania; New Jersey; Ohio; Texas; California; Virginia; Massachusetts; Brooklyn, NY; Baltimore, MD, Lexington, KY; Minneapolis, MN; Berlin, Germany; and Limassol, Cyprus. Ron has attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Art Farm in Nebraska, and Elsewhere Artist Collaborative in Greensboro, NC, HUB-BUB in Spartanburg, SC, and Stonehouse Resdiency in Miramonte, CA. In 2009, he received an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Delaware Division of the Art.
