Guillermo Delgado is an interdisciplinary artist with a history of art creation and teaching since 1994. He shares his passion for art, literacy, and writing with children, college students, adults, incarcerated youth and adults, and educators wherever he goes. He engages students of all ages and backgrounds in the creation of their own interdisciplinary work. Guillermo collaborates with educators to create curriculum which infuses the arts into the academic and civic engagement experience.

Guillermo started his art career as a self-taught printmaker and painter, and in 2013 he completed his Masters of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts. Guillermo integrates the transformative power of poetry, storytelling, movement, visual art, and contemplative practices, including meditation and yoga, into the projects. In 2014, Guillermo was appointed Academic Specialist in Community and Socially Engaged Arts at the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University, a position he holds today. He is active as a visiting artist in several organizations including Columbia College (Chicago), Argo High School (Summit, IL), and Ghost Ranch (Abiquiu, New Mexico), Richard A.
