Greg Wyatt, an American sculptor whose primary medium of artistic expression is cast bronze, is the sculptor-in-residence at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City. Wyatt is known for his public works throughout the United States and Europe, and is inspired and guided by poetry, classicism, Shakespeare, Italian Renaissance masters, and architecture. Wyatt’s sculptures can also be seen in the gardens at the Folger Shakespeare Library, Georgetown University Medical Center, Arlington National Cemetery, and many other major institutions. These maquettes, located on the quad at St. John’s College, will provide a preview for the full exhibition to be on view in the Mitchell Gallery in fall 2022.

This exhibition is organized by the Newington-Cropsey Foundation and the Mitchell Gallery.
