Out of Africa: Sculpture of Bart Walter

The Stanford in Washington Art Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Out of Africa. No one has so masterfully communicated the spirit of the animal in bronze as world renowned Maryland sculptor Bart Walter. For over thirty years, Bart has been sculpting wildlife in North America and Africa, venturing out into the field with his family to study and sculpt his subjects in their natural environment, with the animal right in front of him. Furthering a continuity begun by previous animaliers, he has brought a biologist’s eye and his dynamic approach to surface to the work at hand, conveying the movement and spirit of the animal and experiencing it as he has, with a sense of reverence and wonder.
