The Northern California ArtTable Chapter is delighted to present our first Artist Breakfast with Mildred Howard. A voice for cultural heritage, historical perspective, and moving remembrance, Howard has orchestrated public art, monumental installation, and striking assemblage for a resounding affirmation of human struggle and survival.
An educator and inspirational figure for younger artists, Mildred Howard has created a sweeping body of work that has filled the decades with visual rhythms and echoing forms. From bottle houses to tap shoes, Howard has mapped out territories of memory and mourning, hope and loss. The recipient of the Lee Krasner Award for a lifetime of artistic achievement, the Nancy Graves Award, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, Howard has also received the Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.
This signature ArtTable program is expanding thanks to generous funding from the Pollock Krasner Foundation. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation has been a leader in providing grants enabling emerging and established artists to focus on their work. Funding helps artists to create new work, acquire art supplies, rent studio space, and prepare exhibitions. The Foundation also provides grants to organizations that directly engage with artists, such as artist residency programs.
