Michael Bigger at Josephine Sculpture Park

Known internationally for his large, colorful metal compositions and outsized personality, sculptor Michael D. Bigger was also a charismatic teacher whose dynamic classroom style energized generations of students at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where he taught for more than 20 years. He was “a sculptor’s sculptor, a fearless maker of large-scale work,” said MCAD colleague Brad Jirka. “Watching him work alone on a piece was like watching a ballet with a crane.”
