Sculpting out of an earnest passion to "explore the domains of existence, and capture the deep resonances of our commonality," Frederick Hart devoted his life to honing the craft of sculpture, and experimenting with new media. After he achieved international recognition for his work on Washington National Cathedral, Hart's sculpture of three soldiers at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial changed the national landscape forever.

"Hart's figures embody hope,
reassuring us about the
future of art and humankind."

"Rick is – and I do not
say this lightly –
America's greatest sculptor."
"The most significant new figurative works to grace

Frederick Hart is "a great
sculptor, an American
known all over the world."
