Sherry Lee Short presents ‘Wounded Land’

Sherry Lee Short, a professor in Minnesota State University Moorhead’s School of Art, will present a free public lecture on “Wounded Land” on Wednesday, April 14 at 5 p.m. via Zoom.

Meeting ID: 925 173 8733
Passcode: 004321

Short’s presentation is an honor given as the recipient of the 2020 Dille Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award.     

The lecture will explore the context of Short’s past work in landscape art and her current work in collage through a series of reflections about the Sheyenne National Grassland. The Grassland has been a key influence on her work and life. 

Short earned her Master of Fine Art with Distinction from the University of Georgia. She teaches all levels of drawing and illustration and coordinates the School of Art’s three distinctive certificates in illustration—scientific illustration, sequential art, and book illustration.  

She has held national and international artist residencies in remote wilderness areas, including the Porcupine Wilderness and Isle Royale National Park, Michigan, and Theano Point in Ontario, Canada. Short received the MinnState Outstanding Educator Award in 2020.   

Each year, the Dille Fund for Excellence Committee and the President select one MSUM faculty member to receive the Dille Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award. It’s one of the highest honors that MSUM grants to the faculty.
