Artist Statement:

Gilbert Boro has had a distinguished career as a sculptor, architect, educator and international design consultant.  His sculpture is concerned with the interplay of space, place and scale.  He uses various materials, including steel, stone, aluminum, and wood.  He believes the challenge and joys of creation are equally related to visualization and execution.  What art should do is help us regain the creativity we all had as children.

Boro has received two traveling fellowships and held many visiting teaching positions.  His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and purchased by collectors, corporations and foundations in the US and Europe.
