DOUG JONES is a Detroit-based artist, designer, and arts advocate, originally from Jackson, MI. A 2022 Cranbook Academy of Art MFA graduate and Windgate Fellow, Jones’ portfolio includes awards and recognitions from the American Institute of Architects (2018) and (DD 139) the Detroit Design 139 Biennial (2019). Over the past 5 years, he has committed to large-scale public art projects and collaborations throughout Greater Detroit and independently worked with more than 4,500 residents to develop 61 works on public display in an effort to make the arts more accessible to traditionally marginalized communities using his techniques. Concurrently, Jones continues his ongoing work towards new visual language and his recognized development of an innovative approach to abstraction, figuration, and cartography. His work presents contemporary questions rather than modernist universal answers in this current age of data. This year, CAA recruited Jones to teach as a Post -Graduate Studio Fellow in its MFA Photography Department. DougJones.Art
