M.E. Ware is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. She employs irony and humor in her art to expose the deficiencies of modern ideology and social discourse with regard to the human desire for “meaning” and a purposeful life. Her work is grounded in visual story telling, modern myths and social ideology, the essence of memory and resurrecting or re-ordering history. Her installation work, photography, and sculpture have been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Atlanta and across the U.S in both solo and group shows.
Ware is Associate Professor and the head of Sculpture at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, where she teaches a wide variety of studio and critical theory courses. In 2009, Ware was Artist-in-Residence at Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark. She is committed to research and teaching and conducts lectures, presentations and workshops at national conferences, seminars and universities.
