Bill Hyatt is a metal sculptor of some renown in the area. His metal sculptures are beautifully executed ranging from the surreal to literal representation of their subject matter. They are surreal and real at the same time. Often whimsical, often make an interesting punctuation mark in the area they are displayed. From small crucifix to room sized they are always different and always beautifully done.
I’ve known Bill for a number of years through the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts (MAFA) which is sponsoring the Celebrate the Arts this weekend. Bill Hyatt was chosen to be this year’s Featured Artist for a variety of reasons. Bill has been involved with MAFA for many years, working tirelessly in the lean years to ensure the Celebrate the Arts show was put on. His devotion to MAFA as well as his beautifully executed art were the reason he was chosen to be the featured artists for this years 50th Anniversary Show. For a small gallery of his work make the jump.
This is just a small sampling of his work. You can see more of him at the Celebrate the Arts this weekend in Monrovia’s Historic Library Park. Bill will be in space 28, located in the south central portion of the park nearer the corners of Myrtle and Lime.
