  • Haas Center for Performing Arts » 1121 - GVSU Art Gallery


Originally from Canada, Melanie Daniel immigrated to Israel, and has been working in the United States for the past three years. Her work often explores humankind’s relationship with the natural world, imagining a chaotic environment punctuated by bold and psychedelic colors and patterns. She is currently the Stuart B. and Barbara Padnos Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Chair for the Visual and Media Arts Department at Grand Valley State University.

For That Shape is my Shade, she has coordinated a collaborative exhibition with a group of artists representing faculty, staff and students at the university. This exhibition serves as one of Daniel’s culminating projects of her residency, and explores each artist’s process of creating, sharing and stepping away from their work.
