Gerard has continued his father’s legacy of public art, creating pieces that have physical and emotional impressions on current and future generations. Within the exhibition and publication, visitors were invited to discover Gerard’s inspiration and process, explore how the public interacts with the pieces physically, socially and culturally, and experience how art imbues joy and strengthens community.


Gerard tests ideas with the creation of maquette studies or scaled models. These studies inform his process to determine proportion, form, and finish.
