The Bellefonte Art Museum: Linna Muschlitz

Posted on January 5, 2013 

One of the more than 60 artists listed in the Bellefonte Art Museum’s registry is Linna Muschlitz. Here is her statement: 

 Linna Muschlitz spent her childhood in the woods among majestic oak, maple, larch and hemlock trees, yet only two miles from Penn State.  From ages 5 to 15 she attended Penn State’s Saturday Morning Art Classes for Children established by Viktor Lowenfeld, where she relished exposure to varied artistic mediums and instruction from world-class artists.

In 4th grade she took her first pottery class, and decided to be a potter when she grew up.  After graduating from Penn State with a B.A. in visual arts-ceramics, she earned an M.S. in art education from the University of Oregon, taking pottery classes and workshops in a variety of settings along the way.

Travel to exotic and colorful places like Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Mexico, Hawaii, and our own national parks have been sources of inspiration for both her clay work and richly colored silk paintings.
Linna Muschlitz’s works have been featured in juried shows in Hawaii, Oregon, and Pennsylvania, and have won awards in all three states.

The Bellefonte Art Museum celebrates the human spirit through the arts, recognizing the importance of art in our lives. In 2011, the museum experienced a large increase in attendance, private donations and membership and completed refurbishing the historic Linn House. The museum opened three new galleries: the Children’s Creativity Center, the Anna Wagner Keichline Gallery and the new Louise Bloom Sieg Gallery. The museum is opened Friday through Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Phone 814.355.4280
