ASHLEY MORGAN studied sculpture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (MFA 2010) and visual arts at Arkansas State University (BFA 2006). In addition to local and national research, Morgan has traveled abroad to study contemporary sculpture on the streets of Florence, Italy to gain insight into the boundaries between public and private viewing of contemporary art. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including public art projects in Florence, Italy and Seoul, Korea. She has created site-specific installations and been a part of numerous group exhibitions including works at the Charles Allis Art Museum and the John Michael Kohler Art Center. In recent years, Morgan has also been selected as a fellow for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Nohl Fellowship and awarded a Sonnabend Fellowship for the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles. Ashley Morgan lives and works in Milwaukee, where she is an instructor at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design.
