Overview

This program profiles sculptor extraordinaire George Segal, known best for his life-size plaster creations of ordinary people performing the simplest of tasks. The profile looks at Segal's life, his art, and the impression he made on American still life art. Insight comes from intimate interviews with family, friends, art critics, and art connoisseurs. Also included is archival footage from the 1960s and the generation and culture within it. A highlight of the program is a look inside the previously inaccessible barn/museum of this American great. ~ C. Dwayne Smith
