Del Harrow


Del Harrow lives and works in Fort Collins, CO with his wife, potter Sanam Emami and their son, William. He is an Associate Professor at Colorado State University where he teaches Sculpture, Digital Fabrication, and Ceramics. His art practice spans genres of sculpture and design and integrates traditional manual and skill-based forming processes with digital fabrication technology. Harrow has been invited to lecture widely on his own work and on the intersection of digital fabrication and craft in contemporary art and education. Recent lectures include Syracuse University/The Everson Museum of Art, The Auerbach Endowed Lecture Series at Hartford Art School, CT, and the Current Perspectives Lecture Series at Kansas City Art Institute. His work has been exhibited at The Milwaukee Art Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The Arizona State University Art Museum, Vox Populi Gallery, and The Museum of Fine Art in Boston. In 2020 Harrow received a United States Artist Fellowship, “an awards celebrating artists and cultural practitioners who have significantly contributed to the creative landscape and arts ecosystem of the country.”
