About Howard Uphoff


Born in 1909, Howard wanted to study art when he graduated from high school but could not afford the tuition. At the age of 59, Howard revisited his dream to become an artist. Taking day and evening classes, he became a prolific artist in the Washington D.C. area, mounting many successful one-man shows and exhibitions and winning local recognition. Howard Uphoff established this scholarship fund to assist high school students pursue their dream for artistic training.
