Introduction to Art


  • Goddard College - MFA Interdisciplinary Art
  • Georgia Southern University - BFA photography, printmaking


Michael Dickins joined the USC Upstate family in the summer of 2011 as the manager of the Performing Arts Center Box Office and the Curtis R. Harley Art Gallery. He has an M.F.A.I.A. from Goddard College and a B.F.A. from Georgia Southern University.

Dickins is also an accomplished visual artist with an exhibition record that spans the southeast as well as Augusta, Maine, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Denver, Houston and Berlin. He has also received commissions from the Pittsburgh Playhouse as a visual artist for their production of The Bench and the Houston Metropolitan Dance Company for original sound score and projection design.

He is interested in the impact that the technological advances of photography has had, and is having, on our visual culture. Dickins’ current work focuses on the importance of the snapshot both as art and as an influential medium in historical and contemporary societies. He creates his work with a variety of media including photography, printmaking, drawing, installation, sound and video. His balance of both digital and material processes allows him to create pieces that are expressive and engaging.
He is influenced and supported by his beautiful wife, artist Dawn Martin Dickins, an associate professor of art at Young Harris College in northeast Georgia, and his two sons, Carver and Drew.
