Biography from Gallery Paule Anglim:
The artist employs the common house-hold object, the spinning spherical map, as her ready-made.  As a scaled-down model, it serves to contain and describe our under-standing of peoples, borders, governments and social constructs.

For over thirty years, Howard has combined folk imagery, architecture and photography in an assemblage technique which questions norms yet pays homage to simple traditions.

Mildred Howard has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Adeline Kent Award from the San Francisco Art Institute, the Joan Mitchell Foundation and a fellowship from the California Arts Council.

Her work has been exhibited internationally including recent shows in Berlin, Cairo, and Bath, England.  Large-scale installations have been mounted at Creative Time in New York, in SITE San Diego, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the New Museum in New York.

Public commissions and installations were executed for the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington; the City of Oakland; the San Francisco Arts Commission; and San Francisco International Airport; and the San Jose Museum of Art.

Mildred Howard’s works are represented in the collections of SFMoMA, the DeYoung Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Museum of Glass and Contemporary Art, Tacoma, the Oakland Museum, the Palm Springs Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art.
