Harold T. Holden

Harold T. Holden, or “H” as he is known to most folks, has been capturing the West in sculptures and paintings for over 35 years.  While his work can be found in the Oklahoma State Capitol and on a U. S. postage stamp, his public sculptures have kept him busy the last few years with 22 monuments completed in the last 20 years.

In 2001 H received the Governor’s Art Award from Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating and has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oklahoma Sculpture Society.  In 2005 he was selected as a Distinguished Alumni from Oklahoma State University and in 2012 was elected into membership in the Cowboy Artists of America organization. His most recent public work is his life and one quarter monument of former slave turned U. S. Deputy Marshal “Bass Reeves,” which was dedicated May 26, 2012 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. 

H was featured in a one man retrospective in August of 2010 at the Gaylord-Pickens Oklahoma Heritage Center in Oklahoma City. 

H lives near Kremlin, Oklahoma with his wife Edna Mae.
