Julia Bradshaw’s art-projects are often cleverly playful. Projects are responsive to her environment such as being a foreigner, flying, reading, photographic technologies, and the intersection between science and art. In her current project, “Survey,” she responds to Surveyor-type Luna imagery. Bradshaw has exhibited her video-art and photography projects throughout the United States and internationally in Guatemala, The Netherlands, Poland, and Germany. She received her MFA in 2007 from San José State University with an emphasis on photography and video art. She currently teaches photography and video-art at Oregon State University. In 2020, she was an Oregon Arts Fellow courtesy of the Oregon Arts Commission. In preparation for the 2017 solar eclipse at OSU, Bradshaw organized photography workshops teaching people how to make a solar filter and photograph the sun, curated an exhibition of cosmic related art titled “Totality” and organized a weekend of cosmic art-related activities for around 6000 visitors. On a smaller scale, she is now preparing similar activities for the 2023 annular eclipse.st!
