Megan Mosholder is an artist who operates in the real-world setting of the social-political landscape through site-responsive, sculptural installations. Through the creation of three-dimensional drawings often enhanced by light, Megan emphasizes obscured elements within recognizable objects and correlates the symbolic with lived experience. She is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design and has received numerous awards from institutions such as the Foundation for Contemporary Arts and the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. Her diverse exhibition history includes an installation in Sydney, Australia (2017), a body of site-specific work that speaks of the lasting impression a fully immersive, multi-sensory artwork can leave on a viewer. Most recently, Megan has been installing commissioned, permanent artworks, including a temporal, light-sensitive piece for Google’s office in Pittsburgh, PA (2016).
