Sara Huston is an artist, designer, educator and curator. She is one half of the Last Attempt at Greatness, an interdisciplinary avant-garde studio she established in 2008 with her partner John Paananen. Sara teaches studio and theory based classes and is a mentor for various colleges, including the University of Oregon, PNCA, and Marylhurst. She received a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 3D design and a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in sculpture.
Huston’s work explores subjects of progress, expectation, liminality, categorization, perception, value and the intersection and language of art and design. Her work is aimed at provoking discourse and contemplation in the viewer or user in an attempt to disrupt conventional ways of thinking, induce reflection and challenge the boundaries of what is known.
