Jon Neal Wallace, M.A. 2008

Jon Neal Wallace’s final document, “Light from Design,” presents a concept for a new design principle for art entitled, “Directions,” that correlates art and physics. Wallace’s innovative design principle got him noticed by the international art community. Since graduating from the M.A. Online Program, his environmental and political art have been shown in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Miami, London, and Europe. His art was originally scheduled to be included in a show for Beijing, but some of the show’s controversial stance on communism was quickly vetoed by the Chinese government. Currently, his work is under consideration for an exhibit in Paris.

Wallace’s other passion is writing, which he is pursuing within an MFA program. He is presently working on a historical novel about the civil War, Ragman’s Roll. It involves the reader in the cause of freedom for everyone through the dedicated eyes of the narrator, Tom Jackson, friend of Gen. William H.L. Wallace whose heroic life he witnesses.

In addition to his art and writing career, Jon Wallace hopes to share his passion for these topics with his own students one day.
