Jon Geiger

upcoming project

Valley Boy August 17th, 2018

Jon P. Geiger was born in York, PA and currently resides in the Detroit area. He received his BFA in ceramics from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2010 and an MFA in ceramics from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2014. His work centers on the mysticism of the American West, the power of the land, and the frontier spirit; often challenging their origins and place in the imagination. Upon graduation from Cranbrook Geiger's work, The Exit, was acquired as part of the permanent collection of the Cranbrook Art Museum. His work has been exhibited most recently with his solo show Nothing that Gleams at Three Walls in Chicago, IL, along with the group show Read Image, See Text at the Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
