John Engelbrecht is a visual artist, arts organizer, and educator. Countless local, national, and international exhibitions have happened at Public Space One, under the tenure of his directorship, along with a nearly daily program of performances, workshops, residencies and other (if succinctly-indescribable, yet exponentially exuberant) events.

His background in photography informs an everyday, cross-disciplinary art practice which looks with interest and inquiry towards the social, performative, and ephemeral using text and image. He teaches art at the University level in Iowa City, IA.
