MSSU will host Dawn Holder exhibit through March

“A Glory That May Never,” is a solo exhibition by sculptor and installation artist Dawn Holder that will be showcased Monday, February 22 through Thursday, March 11 in Spiva Gallery at Missouri Southern State University.

From a Missouri Southern State University News Release:

“Holder’s work explores landscape as social and cultural construct. In recent years, her work has been critical of the many Confederate monuments throughout the South, and her travels in Europe have found the genesis of these images of power and control in Roman antiquities. 

Through her sculptures, she hopes to validate the ongoing fight to reevaluate the many monuments erected in the spirit of oppression.

Dawn Holder is an associate professor of art, who teaches sculpture, ceramics, and art history at the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas.”

Her work has been shown in galleries and museums around the country and is the recipient of many awards and grants.

Holder will also be holding an artist talk via Zoom at noon today.

The meeting ID is 966 8299 8619 and the passcode is 246373.
