Born in Norwalk, Connecticut / Lives and works in metropolitan Kansas City
Art McSweeney was born on the East Coast and moved to the Midwest at the age of seven. The fourth of five children, he is the son of second-generation, Irish-American Catholics whose social conscience was formed by their experiences during The Great Depression, World War II, and the social reforms of the 1950’s and 60’s. Art was raised to be aware of what was happening in the world and to act to correct injustice
