David Meyer teaches and oversees the sculpture program at the University. His work explores various concepts associated with experience through an abundance of non-traditional and traditional materials and processes. The work ranges from site-specific installation art and large-scale outdoor commissions to simple objects that compel the viewer to take a second look. He has had solo exhibitions in the United States in Philadelphia at the Skybox, San Antonio College, Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in Kansas City and internationally as part of a residency at the Hellenic International Studies in the Arts in Greece.
Meyer was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship in 2000 from the Delaware Division of the Arts for Emerging Professionals. In that same year, he showed two works in the Delaware Art Museum's Biennial 2000 exhibition one of which was a time-based outdoor sculpture. He has been in numerous group exhibitions nationally including the US National Botanic Gardens and the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington D.C., Arlington Art Center and at LG Tripp Gallery in Philadelphia.
He has completed two large-scale commissioned works in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Tribal Monument was conceived and constructed in 1989-1996, in which Meyer designed and developed an intersected circular earthwork in honor of the thirty-six tribal governments of Oklahoma on the North Mall of the Oklahoma State Capitol. The second piece was created in honor of the survivors and victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing, which was commissioned in 1996, by the regional archdiocese of Oklahoma.
