Sculptures by Morris Squire
Morris Bear Squire is a working artist and philanthropist in Santa Barbara, California. His artwork stems from an extensive history of world travel as well as decades of practice in human psychology. His recent work with lacquer is the culmination of Squire’s social integrity, which he continues to nurture through escapades to the Orient and beyond.
Since September 2011 two of his sculptures have been on long-term loan to Palms Middle School:
- "Plate", in the Library courtyard. Completed in 2004, it was constructed out of rebar, metal mesh covered in concrete, and painted.
- "Peace", in the 6th grade area just behind the Auditorium, was constructed out of rebar covered in concrete with the addition of painted metal. The Chinese symbols and letters represent peace.
The sculptures were dedicated on October 11, 2011.
