Louisa, Tristan, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I loved watching the children, mine and the others, rushing to each new statue to see what it would look like, and then seeing them examine and enjoy seeing it for the first time. It was like unwrapping presents! Thank you for asking us to do it, it was an honor, and it is a memory we will always treasure.
About the Artist: Seward Johnson
Following an early career as a painter, Seward Johnson turned his talents to the medium of sculpture. Since then, more than 450 of Johnson’s life-size cast bronze figures have been featured in private collections and museums in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, as well as prominent places in the public realm such as Times Square and Rockefeller Center in New York City, Pacific Place of Hong Kong, Les Halles in Paris, and Via Condotti in Rome. Seward Johnson initially became widely known for his sculptures depicting people engaged in every day activities. Johnson’s desire to highlight the mundane in his Celebrating the Familiar sculpture series has brought a unique voice to the world of art in public spaces.
