Kari Dunham, MFA, is an adjunct professor in the Art and Design Department at APU. Her current body of work is an exposition about family. She comments on the longing for deep and meaningful relationships and how the home has potential for both comfort and risk. Her intent is to make works that derive from personal narratives but that engage the viewer on an emotional level by inviting them to recall their own narratives. Dunham is passionate about learning and committed to coming alongside her students as they develop as creative problem solvers.
