CCA Alumnus and Student in Prestigious Art Show

A recent graduate of Utah State University and a student in the Caine College of the Arts were featured in August 2013’s “Sculpture in the Park,” a professional juried sculpture exhibition and sale in Loveland, Colo.


“This is a prestigious show that features established artists,” said Ryoichi Suzuki, professor in USU’s Department of Art and Design. “I have never seen students in this show before and I am thrilled with their accomplishments.”


Myles Howell, who graduated in the spring with a bachelor of fine arts degree, and Loren Clark, a senior in the art program, were part of the exhibition and each brought 15 sculptures. Between the two, more than $17,000 of artwork was sold in two days.


One of the sculptures Howell took to the show was a 1,300-pound limestone piece on a 200-pound base that sold for $4,650. One-third of all proceeds went to the Loveland High Plains Arts Council, a non-profit organization that hosts the Sculpture in the Park show and sale.


“The show was amazing,” said Howell. “Being selected out of the thousands of applicants really boosted my confidence in my work and to be chosen for the 30th anniversary show was even more gratifying.”


Due to their success this year, both Howell and Clark will be invited to participate in next year’s Sculpture in the Park show and sale.


“This was an experience that I will never forget and will drive me as an artist to continue to create art,” said Howell.
