Jury Duty

Jury Duty, Installation and performance, 2004

Mel Andringa received his MA (1971) and MFA (1978) from the University of Iowa with an emphasis in Multimedia/Intermedia. In 1975, he founded The Drawing Legion, a performance art company that toured original productions in over 50 U.S. cities and the Netherlands. In 1990, Mel Andringa and F. John Herbert founded Legion Arts, a multidisciplinary arts organization presenting contemporary art at CSPS, a 115-year old Czech meeting hall, in Cedar Rapids.

On his work, Andringa states, "I produce original performances that blend material from the lives of historical artists with my own experiences. These performances feature 'living pictures' and 'performed painting activity', and explore artistic process."
