Sunday, October 2, 2016
2:00 pm
Public Lecture by Renowned Monumental Sculptor, John Raimondi
Lyons Hearing Room (2nd Floor) at Arlington Town Hall, 730 Mass. Ave., Arlington, MA 02476
Suggested Donation: $10 per person, includes light refreshments
Reservations are recommended but not required

The Dallin Museum is honored to host John Raimondi, one of America’s most prominent contemporary sculptors, for a discussion about his 45 year career as an artist. Raimondi’s monumental works can be found at more than 25 museums, nine colleges and universities, three airports, and dozens of public and private locations throughout the United States and Europe. His towering outdoor bronze and steel masterpieces, some of which sore as high as 60’ in the air,  are remarkable for being both solid in form and fluid in movement. Born and raised in the Boston area, Raimondi currently lives and works in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Raimondi will discuss his evolution as an artist and the process by which he creates his vast, abstract sculptures. He will also share the ways in which Cyrus Dallin’s art has deeply influenced his work. Raimondi’s elegant forms share Dallin’s classical sense of design and craftsmanship. Dallin’s influence is also evident in Raimondi’s Native American series, a group of eight graceful, sweeping sculptures meant to express the spiritual depth and courage of America’s indigenous people. Read the full press release here.

To make a reservation, submit an online donation of $10 per person via PayPal (below), or contact the Museum at info@dallin.org or 781-641-0747.
