Boston Arts: Sculptor Ann Hirsch Immortalizes Boston Legend Bill Russell

During our Back to Back Exhibition in April, we had the pleasure of featuring local sculptor Ann Hirsch.  Her two beautiful iron on cast plaster pieces -- Watchers: Facepull & Watchers: Eyepoke -- were wonderful three dimensional additions to the mostly oil painting based show. 

In January, after over a year of working on preliminary ideas, Ann was chosen by the Bill Russell Legacy Project CommitteeThe Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation to complete The Bill Russell Legacy Project at Boston City Hall Plaza.  Check out this great interview with Ann by the Boston Art Commission about her process and meeting the legend himself!

We can't wait to see Ann's sculpture & the entire hardscape project unveiled on November 1st from 2-4pm at City Hall Plaza.
