International sculptor, Timothy P. Schmalz has been sculpting large scale bronze monuments for the Catholic Church for over 20 years. Timothy is a figurative artist and his pieces are installed worldwide. One of his most famous pieces, entitled “Whatsoever You Do”, sits outside Santo Spririto Ospital, the oldest hospital in Rome, near the Vatican. Timothy describes his sculptures as visual translations of the Gospels. Timothy also creates large public pieces in bronze. Some of these include monuments that honor veterans and Firefighters. Creating epic pieces that connect with viewers through design and details, not only touching the viewer on an emotional level but also allowing them to feel somewhat a ‘part’ of the piece is what Timothy strives to achieve with his sculpture. Timothy will be discussing his artistic process and his recent interest and research on the Arts & Crafts Movement and its history.
