Don't miss this chance to learn about Cyrus Dallin's teaching career at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (then the Massachusetts Normal Art School) and discover the career accomplishments of several of his students. Faculty member Lugh Giacomozzi will lead a tour of the college’s clay modeling and casting studios and library director Paul Dobbs will speak about the Godine Library's exhibit of works by Dallin and his students. The exhibit will be on view through the summer.
View a plaster cast of Dallin’s General George Washington and works by three of Dallin’s students: Bashka Paef, Donald Plummer, and Albert Petitto. In addition to Dallin's Washington, plasters of Paef's relief sculptures (her finished bronzes can be viewed in Kittery, ME, the Massachusetts Statehouse, Boston Garden, and Boston University), Plummer’s proposal sketch for installation of Dallin’s Washington in Arlington, MA, and a small bronze sculpture and helmet design for the U. S. armed services by Petitto.
Meet at the Godine Library, 12th Floor, Tower Building, 621 Huntington Avenue, which is at the corner of Huntington Avenue and Evans Way. It's the tall black glass building one block west of the Museum of Fine Arts.
