Time & Location

Los Angeles, 100 The Grove Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90036, USA
Over the past twenty years, world-renowned sculptor A. Thomas Schomberg has created a major series of work, comprised of figurative columns capturing poignant “vignettes of emotion” from the tragic events of 9/11. There are few who are not affected by catastrophic tragedies that leave a profound sense of loss, and art creates space for emotion, reaction, and healing. It also inspires the viewer to accept the loss and to move on in order to create a better world.
Join us on the 21st anniversary of September 11 for an exhibit opening ceremony with remarks from:
-A. Thomas Schomberg, Artist
-Scott Shulman, 9/11 Responder and ABC News Journalist
-Greg Barton, City of Beverly Hills Fire Chief
Free for members. $25 for non-members.

Schomberg's sculpture career has spanned five decades of creativity in which he has described, with realistic intensity, the time and environment he lives in and the society we are all captives of. Today, Schomberg’s sculptures have become worldrenowned and are exhibited and collected internationally. Numbered among his early collectors was Sylvester Stallone, who went on to commission Schomberg to create the iconic Rocky statue for the movie Rocky III . While he continues his passion for portraying the athletic figure, Schomberg’s works have evolved into more emotional images best described as his “metamorphic series”. These present and future “column series” are less didactic in nature and are more emotional in theme, representing compelling images of significant American events.
This exhibit will also feature art by Holocaust survivor artists in the Holocaust Museum LA community. Those exhibited are by Gabriella Karin, Eva Nathanson, and Eva Zuckerman Wartnik
