Joe Miller is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist whose primary focus lives in painting. Miller received his MFA from the University of Chicago in 2008, where he worked with Catherine Sullivan and Theaster Gates on a number of multi-media and public projects. His own work consists primarily of large scale murals in both domestic and public venues. Miller is highly involved in holding seminars and speaking on public art practices, and he volunteers his time to engage with urban youth throughout the Mid-west on collaborative mural projects. Recent noteworthy completions consist of a 10,000 square foot mural in the Back of the Yards neighborhood at The Plant Chicago and leading a month long collaboration workshop in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
