Benjamin D. Rinehart is an artist and educator that specializes in multimedia images with a strong focus in printmaking, book arts, pop-ups, and movables. He is intrigued how pop-ups and movables keep the viewer physically engaged by providing a tactile and psychological experience when interacting with the various elements. His socially charged work is currently a part of over 60 public collections and has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, IN and a Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. Ben is currently a Professor of Printmaking and Artist Books at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. He continues to lecture and teach as a visiting artist at various institutions around the country like the Center for Book Arts in NYC and John Michael Kohler Art Center.
