 About the Juror: Amber Hansen

 Amber Hansen is a filmmaker, muralist, visual artist and musician creating socially engaged and community-based artwork throughout the Midwest. Establishing a dialogue between her formal education and the ethics of her rural upbringing, Hansen’s work promotes the value of creative engagement for all ages while raising questions about the ethics of animal welfare and humans’ relationship with food. Hansen is the co-director & co-editor of the feature documentary Called to Walls, a film that celebrates the potential of community-based art in the Middle of the U.S. through the mural works of Dave Loewenstein. She is currently the Assistant Professor at the University of South Dakota where she teaches painting. About her work, Hansen states, “I am contemplating contemporary farming practices that perpetuate the over-production and exploitation of humans, animals, and food and how different systems of growing food and eating are influenced by propaganda, media, culture, and tradition.”
