The Humanities Institute at Trine University will host a virtual conversation with
Greg Mendez, a sculptor whose works have been part of the Sculptures Angola initiative.
Mendez will speak with artist and Trine professor Sarah Zimmer during “Art: Process
and Placemaking,” from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25. Members of the public are invited
A classically trained outdoor sculptor, Mendez has been part of Sculptures Angola
since its launch in 2019. Currently, his work, “Resplendent Fervor,” is displayed
in the northwest quadrant of the Public Square.
Raised in Decatur, Indiana, where he still resides, Mendez studied at the University
of St. Francis School of Creative Arts in Fort Wayne, Indiana, graduating with a B.F.A.
in sculpture. His work depicts figures in motion that are classical in form and modern
His sculptures have been included in many juried public displays throughout the United
States from Florida to South Dakota, earning numerous awards. In addition, he works
collaboratively with other artists to make art and creativity central to placemaking
