Maquettes to Monuments: Bronze Masterpieces
Master sculptor, Tuck Langland has been a Midwestern artist for nearly sixty years. His favorite medium is cast bronze. His works are featured in many public spaces in the U.S. and are in private collections as well as in twelve museum collections.
Born in Minnesota and educated at the University of Minnesota, Tuck and his wife moved to England, where he taught at the Carlisle and Sheffield Colleges of Art. Their first daughter was born in Sheffield, and the second arrived after he took a job teaching at Murray State University in Kentucky. After four years in Kentucky, the family moved to Indiana where Tuck taught at Indiana University South Bend.
Calendar of Events
The institution now known as the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette began over 100 years ago, on April 14, 1909. After a “general awakening of art interests all over (the) country and state” Lafayette residents saw a chance to “stimulate and encourage interest in art and to give annual exhibitions, and also to establish and maintain permanent collections of works of art.”
