D aniel Stern is swiftly gaining as much distinction for his sculpture as for his legendary acting roles on stage and screen. His sculpture has been exhibited throughout Southern California in such places as Christian Hohmann Fine Arts in Palm Desert, Tracy Park Gallery, Malibu, Very Venice Gallery, Venice, L.A. Contemporary Gallery, Culver City, and presently at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center as a part of Visions of America Exhibit. His celebrated work, Handstand, was featured in San Diego Port’s Public Art Exhibit, Urban Trees 7, Pasadena Rotating Public Art Program and, currently, in the El Paseo Invitational Show 2013-2014 in Palm Desert. Handstand was purchased for permanent display by the City of Coronado for the Coronado Community Center. His sculptures were also selected for public exhibit in Toledo Ohio’s Midwest Sculpture Initiative, Santa Rosa’s Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, and Louisville Colorado’s Art in the Park. His work appears in many distinguished private collections. Mr. Stern is an artist in residence at Studio Channel Islands Art Center and a member of the Arts Commission for the City of Malibu.
He was awarded a Public Arts Commission for the City of Temple City’s Rosemead Boulevard Beautification Project. His pieces, Red Car Man and Red Car Woman will be prominently displayed on Rosemead Boulevard after their unveiling on May 10, 2014.
His pieces illustrate the playful, relatable and multi-layered elements that make his sculpture unique. He says of his work, “Having spent my entire adult life as an actor, writer and director in theater and films, I have essentially been bred to tell stories to audiences. I now see that my work as a sculptor is actually a continuation of my work as an actor and filmmaker. In this new medium I am still trying to create characters and capture a scene, hopefully filled with humor, passion, and the examination of human foibles in a moment of action.”
