2011 Visual Arts Fellow
John Dunivant

John Dunivant’s largest artistic accomplishment violates an untold number of laws. Theatre Bizarre grew out of Dunivant’s love of roadside attractions – odditoriums, mystery spots and the like. Theatre Bizarre’s vision of the world through a darkened lens has come to define Dunivant’s work. He is driven to recapture the childhood wonder and danger he felt each summer in the musty corners of those shabby, cinderblock buildings that stand just off of the beaten path. Dunivant is currently working on a series of paintings portraying myths from international folklore as well as some of his own creation.
