Clarke Student's Work Displayed in Chicago

Jan. 17, 2014: Clarke University junior Molly Haut, of Davenport, Iowa, currently has a piece of her work on display at the ninth annual Emerging Artist Exhibition at the morphoGallery in Chicago.

“Dream Shine” will be on display through Jan. 23 at the gallery, 5216 N. Damen Ave., in Chicago. For more information, visit

Haut, a graduate of Davenport Assumption High School, has been very active in the summer programs at QuadCityArts. Last year she had work exhibited at the ArtHaus Annual Emerging Artists’ Exhibit in Decorah, Iowa.

“Dream Shine” is made from cast porcelain, doilies and fabric stiffener. It is a response to the following challenge: For this project, you will create a significant object to enshrine an intangible idea. Intangible ideas include: power, knowledge, sexuality, religion, destruction, etc. The object can be found or entirely modeled from clay. You will make a rigid mold for the sake of casting.”

“I am continuously impressed with Molly¹s critical thinking, research skills, artistic ability, and willingness to take risks,” said Jessica Teckemeyer, Clarke assistant professor of sculpture.
