Scott Kolbo 

2014 Visiting Artist 


Scott Kolbo was born in Washington State in the early seventies and grew up the Northwestern United States. As a kid he spent countless hours drawing to stave off boredom, and drawing continues to play a dominant role in all his work. He became interested in the tradition of satire by looking through art books in the library and realizing that he was most attracted to prints with funny looking people in them. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Boise State University in 1996 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000.

Scott lived in Spokane Washington for twelve years while working as a Professor at Whitworth University, and in 2012 he took a faculty position at Seattle Pacific University. He teaches a variety of courses including; Printmaking, Drawing, Design, New Media, and Contemporary Art History. His interests revolve around the study of culture, aesthetics, literature, film, and contemporary art. In his studio art work he is interested in the incorporation of new technologies into traditional art making strategies and mixing together elements from high and low culture. Scott exhibits his work locally, nationally, and in web-based formats.

In June 2014, Scott worked on a collaborative installation with students in Liz Roth's Taos drawing class. He also gave an artist talk at the Taos Art Museum. In September 2014, he visited the OSU campus in Stillwater, where he conducted a workshop and delivered a talk titled "Collaborative Drawing: It Goes Faster..."

His awards include The Walt Whitman Award from The Academy of American Poets, The Bess Hokin Award from Poetry, and an NEA Fellowship. He has recently completed a multi-genre novel, Opening the World, and has developed a performance involving a literary reading from the book coupled with live music from his band, Professor Len and the Big Night. He is also collaborating with the composer Garrett Shatzer on a piece in the art song tradition to be sung by the tenor David Saul Lee and accompanied by CityWater New Music Ensemble. In addition to writing the text for the performance, Glazner will play electric guitar with CityWater.

A long time professor at The College of Santa Fe until its closure in 2009, Glazner is a Visiting Writer at the University of California, Davis, and a core faculty member in the low-residency MFA program at Pacific Lutheran University. When he's not teaching, he lives in Creede, Colorado with his partner, the writer Pam Houston.


In June 2014, Professor Professor Glazner gave a free poetry and fiction reading at the Taos Art Museum and interacted with students in Amanda Cobb-Greetham's seminar, "Place and Identity in Native American Literature, Art, and Film." Glazner again read some of his work at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. The event took place on Thursday, October 2 at 5:00 in 109 Bartlett. The reading also was free to the general public. Professor Glazner's visit to Stillwater was made possible by a grant from the Fae Rawdon Norris lecture fund.
