Here's Ted Sitting Crow Garner..
Yesterday, [Sep 7, 2010] I met Ted Sitting Crow Garner, at his Sedgwick Studio in the Old Town neighborhood. In fact five sculptors share the studio, others being John Adduci, Michael Young, S. Thomas Scarff and Jerry Peart..
I have met him earlier at the Art Chicago, 2010..
And it was great to meet a sculptor of Native American heritage..His great-great-grandfather Sitting Crow was a Blackfoot Sioux chief and Garner is a registered member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
Ted Sitting Crow Garner earned his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. His sculpture has been exhibited throughout the United States and he has travelled the world assisting major artists with the installation of monumental sculpture. His large scale outdoor sculpture often incorporates the sinuous line of shaped steel tubing ..
