David Black Sculpture

Columbus-based, Professor Emeritus David Black is internationally recognized for his large scale public sculptures. Chadwick Arboretum is fortunate to have one of his sculptures in our Lane Avenue Gardens.

His Sculptures transcend art and become something more. His structures become architectural works of a common theme represented in abstract form. And when installed, his art becomes a progenitor for the area’s development.

David Black, a professor emeritus, is the artist behind such works.

A Columbus-based artist, Black has more than 25 large-scale sculptures in the United States, Japan and Germany.

Black described his work as “proto-architecture,” a reference to his fusion of architectural aspects, such as columns and arches, along with the energy of sculpture.
