JoAnna Ruckman is an antidisciplinary artist, formally trained in photography and printmaking. Her practice is a layering of diverse media ranging from intimate formal gallery work (tools, white boxes), to public engagement through printing political posters (see posters), to a socially engaged oral history documentation project (see HairStories).
She is currently a candidate for a dual degree MA/MFA at SFAI and earned her B.A. in Visual Arts and Cultural Anthropology from Brown University. JoAnna is an active member of SFPoster Syndicate, is currently working in the Print Public Residency at KALA, and is a resident artist at Phoenix in Alameda.
