German Artist Jorg Schlinke was at Denison from March 5 - March 9, 2007.

He was brought to Denison's attention because of his art in public spaces, often creating large sculptural words of natural materials that give pause to passers-by who encounter them. He is part of "The Art of Science and the Science of Art" series, and his visit was sponsored by the McGregor Initiative and the Vail Visiting Artist series.

Born in 1964 in Potsdam, Jorge lives and works in Potsdam and Mecklenburg. He graduated from the Acadaemy of Fine Arts Berlin-Weissensee. 1996 he got a DAAD grant for New York. 1999 he won the Art Prize of the Land Brandenburg. Since 1989 he produces art in public spaces. Since 2002 Jorg has worked with the urban planning team at the Bauhaus Dessau.
