She received a BFA in printmaking and painting from Ohio University, Athens, in 1972, and in 1975 she entered the MFA painting program at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. While there, she began to introduce language into her work. Holzer moved to New York after earning her degree at RISD in 1977 and enrolled in the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. That year, she created her first all-text works, the Truisms series, printing them on paper, which she pasted up anonymously around the city. Holzer has been the recipient of several important awards, including the Blair Award, presented by the Art Institute of Chicago in 1982, and the Leone d’Oro award for best pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 1990.
