Mobile Museum of Art Announces An American Consciousness: Robin Holder Retrospective

The Mobile Museum of Art is to present An American Consciousness: Robin Holder’s Mid-Career Retrospective, open January 21- April 17, 2011. The exhibition features 65 works from the career of this important New York based artist.

Chicago-born and New York City raised Robin Holder (b. 1952) has distinguished herself as an artist whose work carries personal subject matter into the realm of the universal. She is also recognized for helping to perpetuate the traditions of skilled printmaking that occupy a central place in the history of African American art and for her innovative contributions to this tradition.

An American Consciousness: Robin Holder’s Mid-Career Retrospective is organized by the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of the Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora at the University of Maryland, College Park. The exhibition is made possible through the support of a special fund from the Office of the President, University of Maryland, and a major support from the Maryland State Arts Council.
