Graduate Public Practice alumnus Tory Tepp

Recent MFA Public Practice graduate Tory Tepp '09

www.torytepp.com

Tory Tepp, a native of Wisconsin, received his BFA in painting from Parsons with a minor in non-traditional art histories, and studied painting under Joan Snyder. In 2009, he earned his MFA in Public Practice as part of the inaugural class of Suzanne Lacy’s program at Otis. After a temporary relocation to New Orleans, Tory assumed the role of the driver of a vintage armored car for Mel Chin’s Fundred Dollar Bill Project and proceeded on a 19,000-mile journey around the country representing the project as a speaker and artist. This led to the development of an itinerant art practice that has kept him on the road for four years, working from project to project in New Orleans, Milwaukee, Los Angeles and Death Valley, California. In 2012, Tory arrived in New Smyrna Beach, Florida as the inaugural artist for the Atlantic Center for the Arts Community Artist in Residence program. This spawned multiple projects including the ongoing Stargazer Fair Project, a large scale community ecopark and agri-playground. In addition, he recently completed a residency in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where he collaborated with the High Sierra Wilderness rangers as part of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
