Line Bruntse joined the Department of Art & Design in August 2006. Her exhibition record includes venues in Denmark, Austria, Italy and across the northeastern region of the United States. She remains active in her field as an exhibiting artist and as an advocate for studio safety issues. She devotes a significant amount of her service to curatorial work, bringing exhibitions and speakers to the campus as part of her professional practice.

Research interests

Line Bruntse's creative practice centers around material investigations involving bronze casting, steel forming and fabrication, mold-making, wood working, and a full range of traditional handwork techniques. Exploring ideas of place and space her work often takes place on site and involves collaboration with international organizations and individuals. Deeply concerned with the contemporary applications of traditional and experimental media in a rapidly changing and virtually globalized art community her creative output takes a critical look at the universalizing of the personal sphere occurring today.
