This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Wilbert Verhelst, one of the nations major sculptures, is also one of the few of his professional stature who is both native born and educated.  He was born in 1923 in Wisconsin and received his B.F.A. and M.A. from the University of Denver.

His sculpture has been the subject of major exhibitions at institutions such as the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of New Mexico, and Southern Methodist University's Pollock Gallery.

Verhelst has made Dallas his home since the early 1960s.  His larger works grace many private and public buildings in the Western United States, while his less massive works may be seen in public and private collections.

A superb example of one of his larger works is a 35-foot sculptured fountain commissioned by PepsiCo for the corporate headquarters of their Dallas-based subsidiary, Frito-Lay, Inc.

The Artist has been recognized for his blending of intellectualism with superb technique and mastery of materials.  His book, Sculpture: Tools, Materials and Techniques, is considered by many to be the definitive treatment by an American of sculptural technique and materials. It is utilized as a textbook in major art schools throughout the country.

Verhelst, in 1964 joined the faculty of Southern Methodist University where he holds the rank of Professor and directs the sculpture program at the Meadows School of the Arts.
