Crealdé Monument Builders V: Welcome Arch
- David Cumbie
Crealde School of Art
About the Artwork
Through the collaborative process, children from Winter Park and Sanford have created this cheerful archway, adorned with happy faces, which provides a grand, spirited welcome to the imaginative sculpture garden and Crealdé School of Art campus within. This project was led by Crealdé Senior Faculty Member David Cumbie and was funded through grant from the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation.
About the Artist
Since 1975, David Cumbie has exhibited his sculptures in museum and gallery shows throughout the Southeastern United States. As an educator and mentor, David has led the sculpture program at Crealdé School of Art for nearly twenty years and has been the curator of the Contemporary Sculpture Garden since the beginning in 1997. David’s work ranges from realism to pop surrealism, created in clay, found objects, bronze and sometimes cast stone. David works with a narrative theme embellishing common icons, symbols, and figures, creating metaphorical compositions that address contemporary times. For each of the past four years he has shown his work in Europe, including the Sculpture Mile in Steinhagen, Germany and the D’Ars Gallery in Milan, Italy.
