Joseph Crone graduated from the Herron School of Art and Design the summer of 2010 with the intention to explore, through the realistic duality of technical drawing and sculptural framework, the recesses and storytelling of the human mind. These elements help to compose his vision of an altered viewing environment, which he aspires to further develop and capture with each subsequent work of art. Recent accomplishments during 2011 include the Robert Beckmann Emerging Artist Fellowship as well as the Stutz Artist Association’s Residency Program. Crone also was recently published in Strokes of Genius 2: The Best of Light and Shadow, BLUECANVAS Magazine #8, and Studio Visit Magazine soon to be released this fall. He continues to show locally while looking forward to future opportunities that will further his artistic vision as an emerging artist.
