Michele Bosak (Chicago, IL) is a curator currently based in Grand Rapids, MI. She holds an MFA from Northern Illinois University in Drawing and Museum Studies, where she was the recipient of the Medici Award and a Distinguished University Fellowship. Since 2013 she's fulfilled the role as Curator of Exhibitions for Kendall College of Art & Design. Working for a non-collecting institution, she curates original exhibitions and programming designed to engage both academics and the local community.
She encourages a deeper awareness of contemporary creation and showcases a diverse cross-section of challenging contemporary works from both artists and designers who are good humans and who reflect on the positive impacts they can create in varied social, cultural, political and economic interests. She examines contemporary discourses at the intersection of art, design, and technology with an emphasis on women and queer culture.
As an experienced artist, Michele has great insight into the guidance and management of artists throughout the creative process and serves as a mentor to both students and peers. In addition to curating independently and institutionally for the past ten years, she is also an art and design consultant.
