Stacey Holloway received her MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2009, her BFA from Herron School of Art and Design/IUPUI in 2006, and, recently, became the Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2013. From 2009 to 2013, Holloway was employed by Herron School of Art and Design as their Sculpture Technician and Instructor of Sculpture, 3D Design, and Sculpture Foundry Methods. Holloway is an active national installation-based artist and sculptor that focuses on the transformation and growth on individuals as they mature. Through the exploration of storytelling and ethology, she constructs sculptural stills that represent anxieties and fears that collide with a world of ambiguous subconsciousness. Her work takes the viewer on a journey to discover the idea of “home.”
