Artists Harold T. “H” Holden and Mike Larsen received Oklahoma’s highest honor, induction into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Both are sculptors and painters.  Both men have used their talents to celebrate and preserve our rich Oklahoma history and heritage while staying true to the subjects who inspire them.

Harold T. Holden, or “H” as he is called by most, was born in Enid, Oklahoma. Although the first professional fine artist in the family, he comes from a family of creative inventors and talented engineers.  As an artist educated in his subject matter, H is known for his attention to detail and his sculptures of horses and stays close to the cowboy and ranching lifestyle.  Born of Chickasaw heritage, Mike Larsen grew up in farming communities in Oklahoma and Texas. He is a student of history, immersing himself in the past events of the subjects he paints and sculpts.

The Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, is proud to host these artist’s important work and stories.  The Oklahoma Hall of Fame is celebrating 90 years of telling Oklahoma’s story through its people and this special exhibit speaks directly to the inspirational impact of great Oklahoma people.
