Kyra Schmidt

Roanoke, VA
Born in Evansville, Indiana, Kyra Schmidt (M.F.A., photograph, 2017) is a visual artist with a passion for contemporary art practice and theory. Her artistic work promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to picture-making that explores old and new photographic processes, installation, and sculptural possibilities. For Kyra, the medium of photography offers the potential for civil transformation by opening up new relations between us and the world. Her primary goals are to share this enthusiasm and knowledge with others, and to facilitate creative collaborative working environments among students and peers.
