Laura Schneider was born and raised in Wisconsin. She is a Midwest-based artist who colors outside the lines of life. While earning her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Laura’s passion for photography was ignited in the darkroom.
For nearly two decades, Laura has been capturing subtleties that go overlooked by the casual observer. Her perceptive nature gives her work character and revealing depth. She leverages her senses and the natural qualities of her environment to leave inspired, relatable creations in her wake.
Through visual storytelling and the written word, Laura creates a connection we long for. Laura’s mission is to live to her fullest potential by creating work that matters.
You can see Laura create live! On Thursday, March 18, April 22, and May 20 from 5 to 7pm watch Laura create artwork in our Atrium. Then, visit the museum’s galleries to see our current exhibitions!
