MEET THE HERKYS
about the artist
Erin is a Cedar Rapids native and a 2006 graduate of Iowa State University. After receiving her BFA in Graphic Design, she continued on in a career of packaging design for companies in Cedar Rapids until joining the University of Iowa as an Art Director in 2012. Working in 3D has always been a passion of hers and she loves working on sculpture projects in her free time and teaches glass fusing classes across Illinois and Iowa. Having completed Herky on Parade sculptures while attending ISU in 2004, she’s excited to be a part of this great project again for its 10 year anniversary.
