Sculptures photographed from the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum:
Old Arrow Maker (modeled 1866, carved 1872), marble.
Hagar (carved 1875), marble.

Sarah Burris (Artist and Librarian at Bay County Public Library) has both her Master of Library and Information Science and Master of Fine Arts from Kent State University. Her background is in sculpture, so this program will dive into the resurgence of neoclassical art during this time period.
