Douglas Tolman (he) is an interdisciplinary artist primarily practicing in Great Salt Lake and Colorado River Watersheds. He believes inquiry, sense of place, and solution-oriented dialogue are the strongest tools we have for fixing the West’s socio-ecological problems. Residing in the space between sculpture, image, and community work, his practice is informed by place-based youth education, ecological science, and human-powered movement. In addition to an interdisciplinary studio practice, he facilitates the community countermapping project “Where Are You?”. He is currently in MFA Candidacy at the University of Utah as a Research Excellence Fellow and a recent recipient of the Frankenthaler Climate Art Awards. By facilitating generative spaces of inquiry, he attempts to deepen his community’s sense of place in pursuit of solutions to climate and land-use challenges.
