Colleen Mullins is a San Francisco based artist. She holds an MFA from the University of Minnesota. Her work is concerned with incongruous storytelling, ranging from environmentally-concerned urban forest management after natural disasters to the monument removal movement. She has received four Minnesota State Arts Board grants and two McKnight Fellowships. Her work is in the collections of Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Southeast Museum of Photography, and the United States Embassy, Moscow among others, and has been seen in various periodicals, including The New York Times Lens, PDN, The Oxford American Eyes on the South, Black & White Magazine, and Monthly Photo, to name a few. She was recently nominated for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, for her project Expositions are the Timekeepers of Progress, and has been exhibited extensively in the US.
Her work examining gentrification in San Francisco, The Bone of Her Nose, will be shown in a solo exhibit at the Griffin Museum in November. Her work with the Rolls & Tubes Collective will be featured in the forthcoming book "Rolls & Tubes: A History of Photography."
