Artist Talk: Robert DuGrenier

July 12, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

In connection with the exhibit Handle with CareRobert DuGrenier discusses his work.

Robert DuGrenier is a well-known sculptor working primarily in glass, metal and marble. Much of his work is informed by nature and its effects over time on a variety of elements.

Over the years, based on his strengths of creativity and knowledge of materials, Robert has worked in collaboration with architects and designers to create custom glass sculptural installations and chandeliers. These are installed in hotels, stores, museums and private residences around the world.

Robert worked on the redesign of the flame for the Statue of Liberty and was commissioned to create and produce the 1/12th scale model from which the French artisans sculpted the new flame.
