If you do go to the Columbus Arts Festival this weekend, be sure to stop by the Cultural Arts Center and vote for the terracotta bust created by my friend, the Talmudic Sculptor. His piece — which he’s left untitled, but which I think should be called Wide-Eyed Woman — is number 308 in the exhibition. The CAC is having a kind of “people’s choice” vote and, as the T.S. mentioned, any vote for his creation is one more vote than he would have gotten otherwise. (That kind of subtle wisdom is why he’s got the “T” in his name.)
The T.S. story is a pretty cool one. He came to sculpture later in life, after a very successful career in law was well underway. He found that he really enjoyed it and he has especially taken to it after his retirement. I think he’s got real talent, and finding a new passion in retirement is something everyone should aspire to achieve.
