Annie Dugan is an independent curator, educator, and farmer. She teaches at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth and the University of Wisconsin, Superior, where she also manages the Kruk campus gallery. Dugan lives on an organic vegetable farm in Northern Minnesota and uses her rural community spaces for artistic interventions including a root cellar concert, a pop-up tent with interactive projection, and a lab space for visual experimentation. In 2004, she founded the Free Range Film Festival in her barn. The festival screens independent documentaries, animation, and experimental work and serves as a catalyst for creative production.
