Miley joined the UE art faculty in 1961 and retired as chair of the Department of Art in 2001. He served as the director and instructor of the Ceramics Workshop in New Harmony, Ind. From 1966 to 2009 and feature articles and photographs of his work have been included in nine prestigious publications.
