Jon Keith Swindell received an MFA in 1983 from the University of Nebraska,
Lincoln, and a BFA in 1973 from the Columbus College of Art and Design, Ohio.
Jon is a recipient of a NEA Regional Award in Sculpture from the Mid-American
Art Alliance, and a Kansas Arts Commission Meritorious Recognition Fellowship,
1989. His work has been shown in a variety of venues across the country,
including the Joslyn Art Museum, Sales and Rental Gallery, in Omaha and the
Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University in Topeka.

“I want all of the shapes and objects in my sculpture to have a strong psychological
resonance, to ring with a sense of metaphysical energy,” Jon says.
