Monica Sheets creates platforms for communication as a means of civic engagement for herself and other participants.  She was born in Toledo, Ohio and studied Photography at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Her experiences growing up in the Rust Belt (the former industrial heart of the US) were pivotal to her decision to work directly with participants, coming from a desire to reach audiences who might not normally visit galleries and museums. She received an MFA in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies from the Bauhaus-University Weimar in 2009. Her work has been recognized by the MCAD/Jerome Fellowship for Emerging Artists, the Minnesota State Arts Board, FORECAST Public Artworks and the Santo Foundation. In 2013 she was shortlisted for the EMDASH Award at the Frieze Art Fair. She lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota
