Author Series: Murray Dewart, AB '70, Hammer and Tongs

Please join the Harvard Club of Philadelphia for this book talk and social! Murray Dewart, Harvard College Class of 1970, is an internationally recognized sculptor with works in more than 40 museums and public collections around the world. A bronze sculpture of his sits in the Leverett House courtyard, purchased by Harvard in 2006.  His book, Hammer and Tongs: Journal of an Artist and Sculptor, is a rare look inside the art world and art making.

About the author:

image0--2-Murray Dewart has built large public sculptures around the world over the course of fifty years. He is also a fine writer. Poignant, literate, spiritual, and poetic, this memoir narrates the inside dramas and politics of the art world, the galleries, collectors, and public commissions. Dewart shares his experience of the triumphs and the heartbreak. Compiled from his daily journals, the narrative is spirited and infectious, sharp with revealing details and humor, full of personal musings and colorful, sometimes bawdy anecdotes. There is a soulful dimension to this story, as Dewart asks the big questions about life and purpose. He is both an artist and a family man, weaving together the personal and the professional with an authentic voice from inside the discipline of art. He divides his time between Boston and West Sonoma.
