Artist Biographical Information
David “Dave” L. Engdahl earned his BA degree in Architecture from Penn State University. He was a senior vice president and chief architect of The Haskell Company retiring in 2007. Although not formally trained in sculpture, two of his works were accepted in a juried show at PSU in 1971 thus igniting a second career as a fine artist. His works have been included in numerous gallery and museum exhibitions and can be found in many private, corporate and public collections. The recipient of an Individual Artist’s Fellowship from the Florida Fine Arts Council, Mr. Engdahl produced two large scale works, Ascent and Descent, originally installed in the Jacksonville International Airport, and now on permanent loan to Florida Community College in Jacksonville. His Migration of Paper Airplanes (2004), is installed at the JIA. He is active in community arts organizations and serves on the boards of the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville and MOCA Jacksonville. In 2017 he was recognized with the Ann McDonald Baker Art Ventures Award, which recognizes an artist whose work brings distinction to Northeast Florida.
