    Vernon Fisher studied art at Hardin-Simmons University and completed his MFA at the University of Illinois, before returning home to Fort Worth. He taught at Austin College in Sherman, Texas until 1978, when he settled into an art faculty position at North Texas University. Fisher's works have been included in major museum exhibitions, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., and The Museum of Modern Art in Chicago. His art can be found in the permanent collections of museums across the country, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago. His post-modern approach explores information transmission, memory, and taxonomy.
