Jennifer Bastian lives in Madison, WI with her partner and three sweet felines. She was one of two Dane County Emerging Artists for 2017-18 through Arts and Literature Laboratory and Dane Arts, and was the Artist-in-Residence at the Madison Public Library’s Bubbler for the months of August and September, 2017.

Bastian received her BFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MA and MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She is interested in the communal experiences that connect us, the generosity of strangers, and problem solving.

Bastian recently co-founded a new collaborative arts venue in Madison, WI, called Communication. The venue will open in May, 2018.
