Kimmel Foundation Award - Visual
Jon Love makes drawings, paintings, videos, and websites about the ways digital culture affects the contemporary human experience – about what it feels like to live both on and offline simultaneously. Originally from Norfolk, Nebraska, Love received his BFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and completed his Master’s degree from the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Indiana. He currently operates JONLOVESART Gallery in Lincoln which displays contemporary art by himself and other local and regional artists. If you asked him about it, he’d describe his art as “pretty good,” and he’d hope you’d think so too.
