Brian Pardini

2016

A bronze sculpture by Brian Pardini, now resides in the Museum inner courtyard, between the Bacon Gallery, the Cashier’s House, and the ground floor of the Custom House. Pardini creates sculptures from found objects he discovers in nature, especially the driftwood he collects along the shores of Lake Erie, combining and subtly altering them into lively figurative works. This bronze sculpture is a cast of a wooden original, and has been gifted by the artist to the Museum’s permanent collection.
