I thought maybe someone else might enjoy seeing the list of living artists
suitable for elementary compiled. Higher grade levels may want to take a
look at Woody Duncan's site for his "Living Artists" lesson plan and links
I have not researched to see if all of these folks are still alive....Here
is the list - continue to add names . I hope I didn't miss anyone's
Jerry Uelsman, photographer
Jesus Morales, sculptor
James Surls, sculptor, painter
Claes Oldenberg and his wife, Coosje van Bruggen: "Spoonbridge and Cherry"
Frank Gehry: "Standing Fish"
Martin Puryear: "Ampersand"
Deborah Butterfield: "Woodrow"
Charles Ginnever: "Nautilus"
Mark Di Suvero: "Molecule"
Brower Hatcher: "Prophecy of the Ancients"
Judith Shea: "Without Words"
Marino Marini: "Cavaliers - Horse and Rider"
David Nash: "Standing Frame"
Barry Flanagan: "Hare on Bell"
Ellsworth Kelly: "DoubleCurve"
Kinji Akagawa: "Garden Seating, Reading, Thinking"
Dan Graham: Two Way Mirror Punched Steel Hedge Labyrinth"
Children's Book Illustrators:
Chris Van Allsburg
At some point I will create a web page for this list. Many of them are on
my American Artists' page (http://www2.wcoil.com/~mdecker/america.htm ).
There are also additional names on the American artist page. I guess you
could add a whole new group of names if you consider illustrators of
children's books......LOTS of living artists on that list.
