About Artist

John Henry attended the University of Kentucky, University of Chicago and the Art Institute of Chicago, where he received a Ford Foundation grant, the Edward L Ryerson Fellowship and earned a BFA. He received an Honorary Doctor of Arts from the University of Kentucky in 1996. As a visiting professor of sculpture, John has taught at the University of lowa, University of Wisconsin, University of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Transformation is located on the campus of Chattanooga State, where Henry teaches as a distinguished professor of art.

He is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museum, corporate, public and private collections. His works are prominently exhibited in many American cities and states as well as throughout Europe and Asia. His works range in scale from small tabletop pieces to some of the largest contemporary metal sculptures in the world. While identified by some in the 1970s as part of the Minimalist Movement, the geometric forms that have defined John’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism.
