Bio: Anna Segner is a mixed-media painter, writer, and a freshly minted MFA artist from the Integrated Visual Arts program at Iowa State University. While achieving her MFA, Segner served as instructor for four sections of Drawing I at ISU. She graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature with Writing Emphasis and Studio Art. Before graduate studies, she worked as a newspaper reporter in Owatonna, Minnesota. Segner actively incorporates critical animal studies and material culture research to question the human act of “toying” with animals and the artificial approach to replacing the lost wild.
Segner has gained professional exposure through participation in both regional and national juried exhibitions and solo exhibitions. In summer of 2019, she looks forward to working ISU faculty on 20 Artists 20 Parks, an artist residency program celebrating the 100th birthday of Iowa State Parks in coordination between Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Iowa State University.
