Andy Rosen is a painter, sculptor, and installation artist. He is interested in bringing art to places where people aren't used to seeing it -- in 2013, he received a grant to spend a month as Artist in Residence at the Scarborough, Maine transfer station, and in 2015 he received another grant to install a group of wild dogs near the Maine State Pier. He also enjoys putting images on everyday useful objects, which sell through a design company he co-founded, Maineland Design Co. Andy's art practice extends to teaching and museum exhibit design -- if you've been to the Children's Museum and Theatre in Portland, you've seen his work. Andy lives in South Portland with his family.
