About



Megan Mosholder was born in Columbus, Ohio and is a conceptual artist that operates in the real-world setting of the social-political landscape. Her site-specific installations are built out of blacklight and twine. These “three-dimensional drawings” are artworks that encourage appreciation of spaces for what they are but also examine their hidden meanings. 

Mosholder received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from The Ohio State University and a MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her exhibition history includes an installation in Lacoste, France, 2011, a body of work that speaks of the lasting impression a place of beauty can leave on an individual. Her thesis body of work, A Tale of Two Bridges (2012), was an exhibition that explored old conversations about city planning, race and power, older histories, and the more current social and political climate in Savannah, GA. Presently, Megan is preparing for a February show at Roy G Biv Gallery and a residency at CAMAC centre d' art in Marnay sur Seine, France.
