Dave Yust was born in 1939 in Wichita, Kansas, and began his academic career studying aeronautical engineering and architecture at Wichita State University and Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. Art ultimately prevailed: even before his college courses, Yust briefly studied art with the renowned Birger Sandzén in Kansas for a summer in 1951. Yust received his BFA from the University of Kansas in 1963 and moved to Colorado that same year. He then completed an MFA at the University of Oregon in 1969. He taught art at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, for 47 years beginning in 1965. Yust gained recognition and awards as an educator and his work is exhibited widely in Colorado and across the United States.
