Visual artist Megan Mosholder reacts to the social-political landscape through site-responsive installations. Her three-dimensional drawings, often enhanced by light, emphasize obscured elements within recognizable places correlating symbolism with lived experience.
A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with an MFA in painting, Megan boasts numerous awards from institutions such as the Foundation for Contemporary Arts and the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. She is commissioned by leading corporations and included in public art programs, museum exhibitions, and art fairs. Interest in her installations led to international interest in her work, evidenced by her inclusion within the European Cultural Centre’s 2022 Personal Structures exhibition presented during the Venice Biennale and a public art space in Sydney, Australia (2017). These works speak to the power of site-specific work to make a lasting impression upon the viewer.
Her large-scale installations also express her tenacity. Following a September 2018 car accident where the gas tank ruptured and ignited, trapping her inside, she endured burns to over sixty percent of her body. While the event left indelible marks, it also provided new heights for her to reach.
Megan continues to create installations that relay her devotion to her work and the communities she engages. Currently, she resides in Atlanta, GA.
