A Few Local Show Sculptors Discuss their Work
The Shoveler, Ed Pitney, Takoma Park. "It's a tragic portrait of modern man in his futile battle with indifferent nature, pausing to have a back spasm."
Replica of the east building of the national gallery (life size), Bob Delgado, Hyattsville. "It was an accident, really. I shoveled out my driveway and that's how it piled up. In '96 I accidentally did the Hirshhorn."
Heroic bust of Bob Ryan, Joy Roop, DC. "This piece just flowed from my sub-conscious after staring at weatherman Bob Ryan on TV for 3 days."
The Awakening (Verso), Milo Hubka, Arlington. "I thought, what if I turn the Hains Point sculpture upside down so his rear end's stickin' out? And boy, do the neighbors hate it!"
