About the Artist Michael McGinnis

Michael McGinnis is an artist, craftsman, inventor, and Professor at Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) where he teaches 3-dimensional design, drawing, as well as other courses. As Exhibition Specialist at SRJC's Art Gallery, McGinnis recently curated Concepts and Processes in Public Sculpture. He currently holds 3 patents for picture framing, but is most well-known for a popular toy called Superplexus - a 3-dimensional labyrinth of varied dimensions and materials that can be traced by a ball-bearing. Licensed by Hasbro and previously shown at the 2008 Bay Area Maker Faire, Superplexus is on view in Intersections: Puzzles as Art at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.

McGinnis' Philosophy: Create a positive reflection of the world; build well for generations or leave no footprint; art reflects life but is not life.
