Vida Sačić

Vida Sačić is an artist, typographer, and educator. Sačić grew up in Croatia, former Yugoslavia, and moved to the Midwest as a teenage exchange student. Her teaching practice and her creative practice inform each other. Both are inspired by conscious making, the relationship of body to the tools of construction, and the abstraction of language and form. She uses letterpress printing to teach principles of design and typography, as well as collaboration and communication while emphasizing research, process, and expression. Her work explores language, identity, and memory. She exhibits her work internationally, with recent solo and group exhibitions at the Catich Gallery in Iowa, Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Wisconsin, City Museum in Varaždin, Croatia and the Center for Book Arts in New York City. Sačić is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.
