SUNDAY, APRIL 15TH AT 1PM

Nancy Schon - Artist, Sculptor, Author
DISCUSSION OF A LIFE IN PUBLIC ART

We at ABSW are proud to welcome Nancy Schon for a book talk about her memoir MAKE WAY FOR NANCY.

Although she came to public art late in life, Nancy has more than made up for it in her body of work. "The Tortoise and the Hare" in Boston's Copley Square greet Boston Marathon runners as they cross the finish line, McCloskey's "Make Way for Ducklings" is one of the most loved pieces in the Boston Public Garden, McCloskey's "Sal's Bear" graces Maine's Botanical Gardens, as do "Lentil and His Dog" in Hamilton, Ohio.

Each of them posed unique challenges and each generated original, unforgettable results. She will explain what goes into making a beautiful and tactile work of public art, from the wax maquettes to the casting in bronze, from dealing with budgets and logistics to the diplomacy required for dealing with public places and elected officials.

RESERVATIONS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

Please RSVP on our Facebook page
