He was the founder of the municipalWORKSHOP and currently works with the M12 collective. Professor Saxton’s solo work has been described as contemporary vernacular, non-heroic, and an art infused with rural experience without subscribing to any one genre or culture.

Professor Saxton is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
