In Memoriam

The pictured installment, COVID Love, was scheduled to display during ArtPath from June through September.  Due to Douglas's unexpected passing, this location is reserved as a memorial to Douglas to celebrate his life and love for the arts. Please share with us in heartfelt sympathy for Douglas and his family and friends.

Douglas has been an excellent partner of the Lansing Art Gallery, including multiple works displayed in our annual ArtPath Exhibit. Douglas was also an established and celebrated sculpture artist throughout the Michigan community, most known for his unique and beautiful metalworks.

Artist Bio

"I am a fortunate man to have acquired a BS and MA degrees in art from Western Michigan University in 1972. For much of my life, I enjoyed being a psychiatric social worker and returned to building sculptures in 2003. I build large public works because people enjoy them. I currently work at the esteemed Interlochen Arts Academy. My work is held in public and private collections and is widely exhibited nationally."
