Who is Jay Dougan?

Jay Dougan, associate professor of art and design since 2007 at Fort Lewis College, focused on ceramics in his collegiate career, but he now considers himself a sculptor who explores different media. He holds a master of fine arts degree from the University of Notre Dame and an undergrad art degree from Western Michigan University.
Before coming to FLC, he taught at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Notre Dame, and a community college in Dowagiac, Michigan. He’s had a number of solo exhibitions around the country and won the 2008 Durango Public Library commission for “Card Catalog.” Filling the stairwell, it’s a brilliant conceptual work that light-heartedly evokes the history of library technology. If you haven’t seen it, or passed by without noticing, walk up to the second floor and let Dougan’s artistic skills and sense of humor give you a new lease on conceptual art.
