She will be bringing her creative forces to Salt Lake City to work directly with College of Fine Arts students and faculty in the Department of Art & Art History in the spring of 2014.
Known for her work in fashion, architecture and conceptual installation, Puett will bring her latest installation model, “Mildred’s Lane” to Utah which she describes as, “A home and experimental school interested in fostering new modes of social engagement in the world, with the environment and people in mind.” Whitney Tassie, Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts says of Puett, “She in interested in the connection between herself, others and the larger environment. Her practice is a practice of ‘being’ that she hopes will help create a new 21st century artistic paradigm.”
