About

Marty Goldstein’s main goal is to make others smile, so it is fitting that his sculptures became a part of a national movement to integrate the power of the arts with the healing process. In order to enhance patient care and help speed recovery, several medical institutions across the country are creating collections using Marty's artworks. The charming sculptures transform usual hospital settings into restorative and calming environments, bringing joy and hope to patients, visitors and staff. In the Renown Children’s Hospital in Reno, Nevada, ten of his dogs are on display in the children’s emergency room. "The bronze dogs help ease the stress of the young patients" according to Phyllis Freyer, Vice President of Renown Hospital. A large installation can also be found in Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital. Goldstein's sculptures range from works of pure fancy to realistic replicas that capture the spirit of his subject. His dog sculptures are now a part of several national collections including The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library in New York, which hosts a replica of FDR’s dog, Fala. Goldstein begins his sculpting process by mounting an armature, a skeleton of the sculpture to a wooden base, and then applying softened clay. Once he has a full-scale clay model, he casts the piece in bronze using the extensive lost wax process at a foundry. Marty finishes the process by creating custom patinas for each piece. He can spend several months sculpting a single dog. Goldstein says that during the molding process, the first laugh is the litmus test to know he’s on the right track.
