Place-Based

Douglas Tolman (he/they) is an interdisciplinary artist primarily working in rural Utah. They believe a sense of place and connection to community are the strongest tools we have for fixing the many socio-ecological problems in the Mountain West. As an artist, educator, pioneer-descendent, and visitor on stolen land, they hope to facilitate a sense of place within the community by reframing historical narratives and promoting civic participation in the places we call home.
