Mackenzie Urban is an emerging multidisciplinary artist, working primarily in sculpture, installation, and photography.  She studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is set to receive her BA in 2019 in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology with a minor in sculpture. In examining what exactly it means to be human, Urban draws from her intensive natural science background as well as topics related to social sciences. Urban’s photographic work has been displayed in group exhibitions at Valkarie Gallery in Lakewood, Colorado and the Arvada Center in Arvada, Colorado. She has shown her sculptures in group shows at the Museum of Boulder in Boulder, Colorado and RedLine Contemporary Art Center in Denver, Colorado. Urban has an upcoming solo show at Georgia Art Space in Denver, Colorado in May 2019.
