Joe Yorty was raised in the southwest corner of the state of Utah and spent his high school years in Escondido, California. Much of the time between then and now is filled with almost 11 years of military service in which he served onboard ships that carried him to many distant lands. Along with being gainfully employed by the Department of Art at University of San Diego as their head technician Joe is currently in his second year as an MFA candidate in the Visual Arts department at UCSD where he is engaged in the search for an art-making practice that incorporates his obsession with second-hand shopping.

Agitprop readings are free, but wine and donations to the gallery are always welcome.
