Michael Costanza (b.1982, Kankakee, Illinois) has worked as an educator at the high school and middle school level. In addition, he has developed art education programs with Urban Gateways in Chicago and is currently an adjunct professor teaching drawing at Kankakee Community College. He holds both Bachelor and Master of Art Degrees from Governors State University, University Park, Illinois.
With his personal artwork, Michael strives to call attention to the often overlooked beauty of daily life in traditionally marginalized, urban cultures. In 2011 his work is seen in Zurich, Switzerland, at the Wantoot Gallery, which shows modern American art and craft.
