Emily Denlinger has worked as Area Head and Professor of Digital Arts, Photography and New Media at Southeast Missouri State University since 2009. Originally from Ohio, she received a BFA in 2D Art with a Concentration in Photography from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She went on study at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, where she earned a MA in Digital Art, which she transferred into a MFA in Photography and Digital Imaging. Denlinger’s 2D collage artworks have been exhibited across the country and are held in collections internationally. Her interest in history, media, and collective memory prompted her to begin collecting and digitally converting 8mm films. She collages and exhibits these films in the context of historic sites and separately in the context of social media. In addition to her gallery practice, Denlinger creates accessible wearable art that is created for commissions or sold in the local community at boutiques and fundraising sales. In her free time, she works with the Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s office to promote voting and registering to vote.
