Sarah Kusa is an emerging artist who creates highly improvised sculpture and installations. Her

She has exhibited her artwork nationally at venues including The Phipps Center for
the Arts (WI), Yeiser Art Center (KY) and the University of Michigan’s Stamps School of Art &
Design. Her work will appear at Plains Art Museum (ND) in 2016. Kusa was awarded the
McKnight Next Step Fund in 2012 and a Jerome Foundation project grant through Textile Center
(MN) in 2015. She lives and works in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
I use mixed media to create three-dimensional works dealing with human vulnerability,
resilience, and interdependence. My installations and sculptures are highly improvised projects
that explore facets of the human experience within the broader natural world. In my abstract
forms, I investigate themes of connection, protection, survival and permanence. I am interested
in tenuous relationships, things temporary in nature, and things barely held together – Sarah Kusa
