Brooks Wenzel

MFA-Sculpture + Expanded Practice 2013, Art
After completing his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at Ohio University and working as a field engineer for five years, Brooks Wenzel abandoned the luxury of a salary, benefits, and a company truck in order to enroll in Ohio University's class of 2013 MFA program. Brooks has done performances across fourteen states and two countries critiquing the excesses and homogeneity of the very culture that allows him to freely travel about creating art while crashing on couches. His work mockingly reflects the frivolousness and relative pointlessness of what he sees setting up rock concerts and rock climbing. His work has been published internationally in Climbing magazine and he has been asked to curate an interactive art exhibit for a nationwide climbers gathering spring 2013.
