ABOUT

Courtney McCracken was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts at the University of North Florida with a concentration in Sculpture and is currently a Master of Fine Arts Candidate at the University of Georgia in the Lamar Dodd School of Art’s Sculpture Area. McCracken’s creative practice lies between art and organizing. Within the movement of socially engaged art, McCracken applies artistic methods and strategies in confronting issues of social and ecological sustainability. Within the studio she develops systems of reuse and non-waste, while outside the studio she works to encourage creative civic engagement and broaden social imagination. McCracken is the co-founder of Athens Free School and an original board member of Athens-based slow fashion project, Georgia Sewn.
