Megan Rigoni-McCormic holds an MFA in Visual Studies from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as well as a BA from the University of Illinois at Springfield in Visual Art. Her work has been exhibited at the SooVac Gallery in Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as the Burnett Art Gallery in the Chambers Hotel, among several others. She currently lives and works in Springfield, Illinois and serves as Adjunct Professor at MacMurray College, The University of Illinois at Springfield, and Lincoln Land Community College. She and her work were once referred to as "party-time Louis Bourgeois."
Overall, my work is an investigation into formal beauty and contemporary taste. I attempt to make work that walks the line between various dichotomies, attempting to find the line between opposites. I utilize materials that are generally reserved for craft and hobby and attempt to subvert that discourse through manipulation, context, and accumulation.
Currently, I am investigating the concept of congratulation and celebration through constructing award totems for unknown persons. Congratulations, participant!
