Sculptor at the Lutz
Manchester - posted Mar, 25 2013
MANCHESTER - The Lutz Children’s Museum will host a reception with artist David Hayes on Friday, April 5 from 5 – 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. One of the first things visitors see when they near the museum is a brightly colored steel sculpture which was a gift many years ago from the artist. The sculpture was damaged last year when a vehicle veered off the road. That unfortunate event opened a new dialog between the museum, the artist, and his family. David Hayes was born in 1931 and grew up in Manchester. Hazel Lutz, for whom the museum is named, was his childhood art teacher and encouraged him to pursue his passion. David went on to the University of Notre Dame, Indiana University, and a decade in Paris before settling in Coventry in 1969.
