Miguel Rodriguez: And Another One

And Another One is an installation of sculptures crafted from clay, plaster, and carved foam. Motivated by science, popular culture, and current events, Miguel Rodriguez’s work expresses big thoughts and feelings through dark humor, vibrant color, and scale.

Miguel Rodriguez was born in Wichita, KS in 1977. He grew up in Leavenworth, KS, alongside the Missouri River, surrounded by green vistas, big skies, old homes, and farms. His mother, a 5th generation Kansan and his father, an Afro-Puerto Rican with roots on the island that go back to the late 1700’s, were brought together by the American military.

Miguel first found love for ceramics in high school. But as with most artists the passion was an inherent part of his childhood. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2000, then moved to Las Vegas in 2001 to pursue his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada- Las Vegas. He’s lived there ever since.

Over the past 19 years Miguel has shown his artworks throughout the Las Vegas valley. Aside from his ceramic work he’s created multiple large scale publicly- and privately-funded sculptures and murals. Currently, he teaches in the Department of Art at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
