Joann Brennan

Joann Brennan
With a passion to change lives through the arts and education, to advance creative expression, and utilize the creative process as a framework for finding innovative solutions to complex problems, I endeavor to do my work well, evolve as an artist, create an engaging teaching and learning environment where students can excel, and make positive contributions to the organizations and groups that I work with.

As an artist, educator, and academic leader, I have achieved a number of significant accomplishments.

  • I was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003 and a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, from the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, in 2010
  • My artwork has been presented in national and international publications and exhibition venues and is included in collections across the country.
  • I have taught photography at the University of Rhode Island, the School of Art and Design at the State University of New York/Alfred University, and Princeton University.
  • Since 1998 I have been a member of the faculty at the University of Colorado Denver in the College of Arts & Media (CAM).
  • From 2006-2013 I served on the National Board of Directors for the Society for Photographic Education (SPE).
  • In March 2008, I chaired and provided the vision for the SPE National Conference titled “Agents of Change: Art and Advocacy” located in Denver, Colorado.
  • In the fall of 2010 I was selected as a Fellow of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans.
