This fall Roger has begun to prepare to write a book on sculptor Manuel Izquierdo, and to curate the show of Izquierdo’s work, which opens at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in January of 2013.  There will be many trips, conversations, interviews, library hours…ahead this winter and spring as the event and the document take shape.  As this is book/show number 7, we know the drill around here as Manuel beings to take shape in Roger’s head.  As it all begins, there are visits to various sculptures including this one, “The Dreamer” of 1980.   R took a nice series of photos of this sculpture on a fall day recently,  and has let me share them with you.  “The Dreamer” is located in Portland in Pettygrove Park and this is the first view from First Avenue, looking uphill:

Inscribed in the base of the sculpture is the title and date, Manuel’s name, and the names of his two assistants Peter Davis and William Rietveldt.  More photos…

there is ONE mysterious piece…????
