From a field of more than 50 applicants the Neon Museum selected Filipino-American printmaker and illustrator Karl Orozco as its 2018 National Artist in Residence. 

Currently a museum educator and teaching artist at the Queens Museum in New York City, Orozco teaches sequential art, printmaking, animation and portraiture to middle-school students. 

He graduated from Oberlin (Ohio) College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Art and Sociology and founded the Asia America Art Collective, a biennial arts symposium featuring artists from the Asian/Pacific diaspora. 

Orozco’s residency will be July 2 – August 25.
