ART Sculptor Advisor EvAngelos Frudakis Dies at 97

We regret to announce that our “Angelo” passed away on February 16th.

One of America's most significant twentieth-century sculptors, treasured Sculptor Adviser toART, and close friends with ART's president Alexandra York and VP Barrett Randell, Angelo’s best known works are his national monuments, The Signer (Independence Hall, Philadelphia), and The Minuteman (National Guard Building, Washington D.C. and Arlington, VA—this image is also the official logo for the U.S. National Guard).  His exquisite over-life-size female nude (see Gallery section of this site) Reaching is situated in Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture Museum. Alexandra obtained the commission and ART’s Board of Directors member Pierre Rioux funded the project; this was a major accomplishment for both Angelo and ART. Other major pieces are in the Philadelphia Zoo and Civic Center, and his stunning Icarus and Daedalas fountain is in Little Rock, Arkansas (see Poetry).  A renowned Mentor, he owned and operated an atelier in Philadelphia and is responsible for teaching many of the finest sculptors in America, who are now mature and successful.   Mr. Frudakis’s portrait sculptures are too numerous to list, but they include John F. Kennedy.  His various awards include the prestigious Prix de Rome and the Herbert Adam's Award (National Sculpture Society). Affiliations included: National Academician, Fellow; American Academy in Rome, Fellow; and National Sculpture Society. He is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World.
