Featuring works from the past ten years, the exhibition will include preliminary drawings and maquettes (scale models) of monumental sculptures that will often become more than twenty feet tall.
"Jacquard is the consummate model maker, and the process is fascinating," Peter Blume, director of the Museum of Art, said. "He thinks things through from his early drawings into the creation of a maquette."
Jacquard has staged twelve one-man exhibitions over his 40 year career. His work is held in the collections of the Kresge Art Museum at Michigan State University, the Kalamazoo Institute of Art and the Indianapolis Museum of Art, as well as the White River State Park, Indianapolis.
Jacquard is Professor Emeritus of Sculpture at the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts at Indiana University. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship for monumental sculpture and a Fullbright Scholarship to study bronze casting in Florence, Italy.
