Event Details

Assistant chair of the department of art and an assistant professor of ceramics at the University of Southern Indiana, Alisa (Al) Holen is a consistent award winner in regional competitions. Her ceramics will be exhibited in the John Streetman Alcove from May 7 – September 3.

When asked about what influenced her to become an artist, Al Holen tells the story that, growing up, she didn’t know that dads watched football on weekends. She thought dads went to the art studio on the weekends. Her father, the sculptor Norman D. Holen, was a professor of art at Ausberg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She recalls that there was always clay at their house and father and daughter would work side by side making art.

Holen holds a Bachelor of Art degree from Ausberg College, a Master’s degree in ceramics and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture with a ceramic emphasis from the University of Iowa. She is active as a presenter in the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference and is involved in many local arts activities including founding Empty Bowls Evansville.
