Berkeley artist Mildred Howard has shown installations and exhibitions at museums the world over—from Cairo to Paris, Berlin to Tacoma, Wash. Now the globetrotting sculptor, whose creations includes a globe stuffed into a basketball net, comes to CSU Monterey Bay for an intimate talk about her work. Howard strives to bring overlooked people and issues to the surface through her art, joining history with the present and imbuing her art with socio-political metaphors. Her work stretches beyond the visual to the educational and even activist realms, including management of an art and communities program at San Francisco’s Exploratorium, leadership of Alice Waters’ Edible Schoolyard Project, class instruction in numerous Bay Area universities and art institutes, and presentations in East Bay jails. Her visit is the second in this semester’s series of visiting artists. [KA]
