What Sculpture Gives to Me, What I Hope Sculpture Can Give to Everyone

BY BILL MCGRATH
@ VOL 3 ON MAY 12, 2016

Contemplating retirement after successive careers as an attorney then city administrator in his hometown of Batavia, Illinois, Bill McGrath has begun pursuing his love for art, specifically working in metal sculpture. Sculpture, like any artistic endeavor, presents the opportunity to express oneself to others, but also requires some emotional distance to remain true to one’s visions. He also shows how public art, sculpture in particular, can add to a community’s sense of place by speaking to values, history, and universal experiences, such as fear.
