For Immediate Release

The Art Department of the University of Hawaii at Hilo will feature a slide-lecture presentation by visiting artist Mildred Howard in the Gallery, Building 395, Manono Campus at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, March 17. The public is invited to attend.

Howard is a prolific mixed media and installation artist whose work draws on a wide range of historical and contemporary experiences. Her installations, composed of iconic objects from the past, are symbols for the way in which people construct memory and form racial, familial and cultural history. Howard continuously experiments with the concept of environments both within and beyond the gallery space.

Howard has received numerous awards, including the Anonymous Was a Woman Fellowship, an NEA grant in sculpture, the Eureka Fellowship, a Rockefeller Artists Fellowship to Bellagio, Italy, and a Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Traveling Fellowship to Oaxaca, Mexico. Her work is included in the collections of the Oakland Museum, the San Jose Museum of Art, the Wadsworth Athenaeum, Hartford, Connecticut, the Washington State Art Commission, and the San Francisco Arts Commission. She has also served as an arts administrator with the California Arts Council and the San Francisco Exploratorium.

The visiting artist program is made possible in part through funding from the Hawai`i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts and the UH Hilo/Hawai`i Community College Student Activities Council.
