Diane Belfiglio earned her B.F.A. in Drawing, Painting, and Graphics from The Ohio State University in 1978, and her M.F.A. in Painting from Syracuse University in 1980. Belfiglio is currently a Professional Assistant Professor of Art and Studio Coordinator at Walsh University. She has also taught at Syracuse University, Kent State University, and the University of Akron.
A prolific and accomplished member of the area’s creative community, Belfiglio has participated in over 170 solo and group shows, earned numerous art grants, and has been featured in a variety of art publications.
An additional part of Belfiglio’s work is community art installations. She has partnered with local organizations for several large-scale group artworks, including Walsh University, GlenOak High School, Habitat for Humanity, and the Canton Symphony Orchestra. She enjoys the outreach aspect of these projects and encourages people that do not have any art background to participate with projects she is currently involved in.
