Gregg Schlanger joined the Department of Art + Design at Central Washington University in 2011. Professor Schlanger is currently the Chair of the department. He received his BFA from Boise State University in 1987 and his MFA from Northern Illinois University in 1989.

Gregg’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. This includes a public art commission for the State of Washington and the City of Memphis, Tennessee, a community project for the City of Providence, Rhode Island and a commission for the public library in Owensboro, Kentucky. His work has been exhibited in Berlin, Erfurt, Potsdam and Jena, Germany. Gregg has also participated in exhibitions in New York, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, California, North Carolina, Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, Colorado and Washington. He has received many awards including Sponsorship by the New York Foundation for the Arts, Israel-Tennessee Visual Artist Exchange Project Fellowship, USIA Arts America Grant and New Forms Regional Initiative Grant from the NEA.

Gregg works primarily in installations and community public art. He is interested in exploring through his projects the potential of creating a better “sense of place” (leading to a respect for that place and the environment). Gregg believes this can happen through community involvement and the educational aspects that occur dealing with the various concepts of his work.
