John Bowitz was born in Wisconsin and moved to Sioux City in 1977 to join the art faculty of Morningside College. He is proficient in painting, drawing, collage, ceramics, and sculpture, and is able to put an unexpected twist to what we might expect art to be. Bowitz likes to create art that brings different ideas and things together and then asks us to create our own stories about them.
