Carolyn Hopkins graduated with an MFA in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. Her work questions the traditional cultural roles of the feminine and masculine as well as the tamed and untamed and creates outposts from which to re-examine a recognizable terrain. Carolyn has collaborated with Mark Dion and Spurse, and has been an Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC, the Vermont Studio Center, Caldera, Brush Creek, Mildred’s Lane, and Leland Ironworks. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Carolyn lives and works in Portland, Oregon on her half acre urban farm and studio.
