Breezy D. Taggart

Breezy Taggart is Assistant Lecturer for the Honors College where she teaches a range of art history courses as well as interdisciplinary courses related to the intersections of art, medicine, health, and well-being, as well as art and the environment for the University of Wyoming Honors College and the Department of Visual and Literary Arts.  Breezy earned her BA and MA from Brigham Young University in Art History and Curatorial Studies, and received her Ph.D. in Design, Environment, and the Arts from Arizona State University in May 2019. Breezy’s dissertation is titled “Disordered Minds: Picturing Mental Illness Pre-Deinstitutionalization,” and her research centers on representations of mental illness, health, disabilities, and medicine in art, photography, and film. Future research plans include studies of contemporary perceptions of mental illness and the ways in which art both creates and solves mental health issues. In 2017 Breezy co-directed a Medieval and Renaissance study abroad program at Oxford University for Arizona State University, and she has curated and co-curated multiple art exhibitions on topics including public lands, land ecology and sustainability, home, and identity. Breezy was awarded a research grant to do primary research in archives in Washington, DC and New York for her master’s thesis, and she has presented at multiple conferences throughout the country including College Art Association among others. 

Breezy also works on marketing special projects for the Honors College.
