Mackenzie Urban is an emerging multidisciplinary artist, working primarily in sculpture, installation, and photography.  She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2019 with a BA in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology and a minor in studio art. 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 work has been displayed in group exhibitions at the Arvada Center (Arvada, CO), the Museum of Boulder (Boulder, CO), and RedLine Contemporary Art Center (Denver, CO). In May 2019, she had her first solo show at Georgia Art Space (Denver, CO).
