About the Exhibit: World-renowned American artist, Seward Johnson recreates life in vividly realistic bronze. With more than 350 of his bronze figures featured in private collections and museums in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia, Johnson is well-known for the many sculptures located in public places, including Rockefeller Center, Pacific Place, Hong Kong, Les Halles in Paris, and Via Condotti in Rome. These sculptures depict people engaged in everyday activities. This "Celebrating the Familiar" sculpture series has brought a unique voice to the world of public art, encouraging conversation and turning heads wherever they appear. In the artists’ words, "What I’m trying to do is draw attention to the simple pleasures, to show how much fun life is. That’s why there are so many humorous details in my work."
The sculptures are on loan from The Sculpture Foundation, a charitable and educational organization dedicated to providing exhibitions and landmark public artworks for communities.
