Gerald DiGiusto, Arch Construct #14, American, 1984

About

Gerald DiGiusto was born June 30, 1929 in New York City, the son of immigrant Italian and Jewish parents. He grew up in Boston, and as a young man served a stone carving apprenticeship in Quincy, Massachusetts. From 1950 to 1954, while stationed in Tokyo with the Air Force, he worked in the studio of the Japanese sculptor Iwao Norimatsu. Upon returning to the United States, DiGiusto assisted the Neoclassical sculptor, Ernest Morenon, from 1955 to 1957, with commissions for figurative sculptures for cathedrals in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. In 1957 he graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In 1958 he received a BFA from Yale University where he studied under Josef Albers. Contemporaries at Yale included Claes Oldenberg, Eva Hesse, Nancy Graves, Richard Serra and Johnathan Borofsky. He was offered entry to the MFA program at Yale but turned it down for the chance to continue his pursuits in Italy. Supported by Clarissa Bartlett and Mrs. David Hunt fellowships, DiGiusto studied in Florence, Italy from 1958 to 1960. During this period he learned the art of bronze casting at the University of Florence. His teaching career began in 1960 at the University of Oregon where he was assistant professor of art for two years. From 1962 to 1966 he taught as associate professor of sculpture and drawing at the School of Architecture at Syracuse University, and subsequently became chair and professor of sculpture and drawing in the Art Department at SUNY Cortland. He often served as a visiting critic and lecturer at other universities. Just prior to his untimely death on May 15, 1987, he was on sabbatical leave in Florence, Italy, teaching pre-architectural courses for Syracuse University's program abroad. Gerald's work can be found in many Museum, public and private collections. Gerald's work can also currently be seen in the new book titled American Beauty by Thom Filicia and in the November 2012 issue of House Beautiful. This item is signed dated and titled.
