George Segal, who lived most of his life on a farm in Central New Jersey, first used dry plaster bandages to create body casts from live models in the early 1960s. The resulting life-size figurative sculptures can be found in museums and public spaces around the world. In New Jersey, there are examples in Trenton, New Brunswick, Princeton University, Montclair State University, and at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton.
As George puts it, "If I'm able to somehow connect a chunk of 'real' with something mental in my head, I'm ecstatic." We hope you enjoy this special look at this renowned New Jersey artist.
