Mildred Howard Videos

Over the course of four decades, Mildred Howard has created rich and evocative work by taking common objects of daily life and infusing them with the spark of meaning to illuminate the underlying significance and historical weight of cultural form. In free-standing sculpture, in wall-mounted musings, in graphic explorations and in representations of shelter, Howard has developed a language to address racism, injustice, need and compassion.

Mildred Howard: Spirit and Matter showcased a selection of works that presented some of the artist’s most iconic sculptures as well as graphic works never before exhibited.
