Jeff Beekman

I am a multidisciplinary artist whose work since early-2000 has explored the interrelationships between land, memory and human activity.  My work has been exhibited across the U.S., and internationally at venues in New Zealand, Australia, China, Vietnam, England, Italy, Hungary and South Korea.

For the past three years, my work has focused on U.S. Civil War battlefield sites. This began with an investigation of how memorialized sites like Gettysburg have evolved from the broken fields where thousands fell and died, to the manicured locations they are today. More recent investigation have shifted to investigate specifically those places where USCT (U.S. Colored Troop) regiments fought, many of which have not been memorialized or protected.

I teach in the Department of Art at Florida State University, where I am an Assistant Professor, the Area Head of the Foundations Program, and the Director of the BA Program.
