Josh Winkler focuses on environmental issues connected to history and place. By combining personal experience with historic investigation, he builds landscape narratives that ask viewers to engage the social, political, and environmental contexts of their surroundings. Winkler is currently completing his second Artist Initiative Grant from the MN State Arts Board, and was recently selected for an artist residency at the University of Minnesota’s Bell Museum of Natural History.
