Tribute by Hans Van de Bovenkamp

Sculpture and paintings presented as a proposal for a permanent October 1 memorial.

Renowned for his monumental sculpture created primarily for open-air public locales, Hans Van de Bovenkamp has been described as an artist-mystic whose work with entries, gateways, and portals intends a warm, welcoming, and transformative experience.

A Dutch immigrant to the United States, he was a part of the avant-garde Tenth Street scene in the New York City of the 1960s, an adherent of Abstract Expressionism, and has maintained residences in New York City, Sagaponack in the Hamptons, and Las Vegas. Van de Bovenkamp has earned an international reputation in the past 55 years for designing, fabricating, and installing over 100 unique commissioned sculptures and fountains in collaboration with architects, cities, museums, and private individuals. His works can be seen in public, civic, corporate and private collections. Recent solo exhibitions include Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ, the Danubiana Meulensteen Museum, Bratislava, Slovakia and Season of Sculpture, Sarasota Marine Park, Florida.
