Michael Baum left the plains of the Dakotas in his early twenties for the mountain ranges of California, Wyoming, Montana, Washington and Alaska. His interactions with nature and the wilderness became the impetus for his graduate studies in fine art, which he completed at Washington State University, with an emphasis in painting and printmaking. Michael is currently an Adjunct Professor of Art at Black Hills State University, South Dakota. Since 2008, he has been featured in various exhibitions both internationally and across the United States. Recently, in 2014 Michael has become the recipient of a career development grant from the South Dakota Arts Council. His current drawings have been featured in INDA 9, Manifest's Drawing Center.
