The Making of a Sculpture of Ensign Jesse L. Brown
This sculpture of Ensign Jesse Leroy Brown is one that I worked on in a sculpture class at the Crealde School of Arts in Winter Park, Florida under the tuteluge of artist David Gumbie and and Crealde;s guest artist Bobby Scroggins. I began working on the piece during the time Bobby Scroggins was the curator of an exhibit at Crealde commemorating President Obama. Bobby Scroggins bears a striking resemblence to Ensign Jesse Leroy Brown. He is an accomplished artist and has completed a sculpture of one of the Tuskegee Airmen. It was David Gumbies suggestion that I take this rare opportunity to work with this fine artist. I hope to one day finish it.
