Matt Weir received his BFA from the Hite Art Institute at the University of Louisville in 2004. Weir’s classical training, however, evolved through concurrent apprenticeships with a distinguished line of artists and studios, including Paul Fields and the Bright Foundry with whom Weir was a technician and sculptor for nearly fifteen years. He states he not only prides himself on the diversity of his training, but furthermore, sees within this experience the reciprocal responsibility he has to his work, his audience and the education of younger artists because of it.
Weir has exhibited his work extensively throughout the midwest including The Evansville Museum of Art, History, and Science, The Kinsey Institute, the Louisville Visual Art Association, Actor’s theater, Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, The Kentucky Folk Art Museum, and many more. His work exists in the collections of the City Of Louisville, the City of Vandalia, 21c Museums, Hidden Hill Sculpture Garden, Jewish Hospital, St. Xavier High School and Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest as well as numerous private collections.
