[LincolnTalk] Did you know...

samattes
... that Lincoln is home to an important statue by one of America’s most renowned sculptors, Cyrus Dallin (1861-1944)? “The Boy and His Dog” is situated near the entrance of the Lexington Road Cemetery?  It was commissioned and then donated to the town by resident Helen Osborne Storrow in the 1920s. The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum will talk about the artist, the donor, and of course the Storrow sculpture itself. Indeed, other Dallin works with Lincoln connections include his “Appeal to the Great Spirit” outside the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the “Paul Revere Statue” in Boston.

Re: [LincolnTalk] Did you know...

Gordon Woodington
Dallin taught at Mass. Art.    Many local people must have stories about him, passed down from graduates of Mass. Art.     Some of his works are considered controversial these days.  Given his interests and leanings he might consider as positive the change in the social and political dynamics about "art" versus "respect", despite his and our attachment to his creations as mastery of an art.

This should be a very interesting presentation.

Gordon Woodington


"From 1899 to 1941, he was a member of the faculty of Massachusetts Normal Art School (now the Massachusetts College of Art and Design). In 1912, he was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, and became a full Academician in 1930. When he died in 1944 his life was celebrated in a Unitarian service.[10]  "
