Cheryl Dunn is a photographer and filmmaker. After many years of working in commercial photography, she later leaned towards fine art and film. Dunn has exhibited her photographs nationwide and has participated in local and international film festivals. In 2002 she completed a residency at the Wexner Center for the Arts and produced the documentary film Licking the Bowl in response to Free Basin, a sculptural project using skateboarding forms created by SIMPARCH, a Chicago-based artist collaborative. In her work, Dunn brings to light the importance and value of youth and street culture and finds beauty and power in its unaffected creative expression, free thinking, and nonconformity.
