Wopo Holup was originally from Texas and moved to California to pursue her early art ambitions.  She was a longtime resident of New York City and the mountains of Colorado until her death in 2016.  Holup completed more than two dozen public art projects across the country.  Her bronze and iron work can be found at the Philadelphia Zoo, Historic Battery Park in Manhattan, and the Tampa International Airport, among many others.  Collaborations with architects, government agencies, and inspired communities helped Holup achieve her artistic goals.  Articles and responses to Holup’s work have appeared in Sculpture, Landscape Architecture, and the New York Times. Drawings produced with Holup’s proj- ects have been shown in solo exhibitions at Mill Museum, National Park Service, Lowell, Massachusetts; Urban Culture Project, Kansas City, Missouri; Charles Schulz Gallery, Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, California; and the Center for Architecture, New York City.  Her drawings were also included in a traveling exhibit for the Center for Creativity and Design at the University of North Carolina.
