JOHN SAFER SCULPTURES
SEPT. 16 – OCT. 29, 2010
The George Washington University's Luther W. Brady Art Gallery presents John Safer Sculptures. Twenty-one works by the GW alumnus and sculptor will be showcased, highlighting smaller versions of his public works and award commissions.
Works in Lucite, bronze and steel span Mr. Safer’s career and include early geometric works as well as lyrical forms that evoke the movements of athletes and dancers including Serve. Another side of Mr. Safer’s work has been commissioned to serve as awards including Bird of Peace, 1989, created for the National Peace Foundation, or Symbol of Courage, 1986, given by Georgetown University’s Lombardi Cancer Center to a person who has faced cancer and possesses the qualities of courage, dependability, discipline and honor. Lance Armstrong and Scott Hamilton are past recipients of the award.
