Lizzy Wallen was one of the recipients of the Summer SDB Research Grant. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including shows at Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts in Providence, RI and Jones Gallery in Kansas City, MO. She also received third place in 2D art at the 510 Arts Guild in Decatur, IL. She enjoys creating surrealistic photographs that create a visual of the innerworkings of the mind. Her projects portray subjects such as anxiety, fear, depression, and things that we would otherwise not see in “real” life.
