Stephen De Staebler @ Montalvo Arts Center

With their allusions to antiquity and corroding human forms, De Staebler’s iconic sculptures powerfully activated the secluded grounds of the Villa Montalvo Arts Center, an Italianate villa and public park nestled into the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Saratoga,” wrote Julia Couzens.  “Whether stationed on the villa’s lawns, its great veranda, or in the beckoning gardens, the settings for these five life-sized bronze sculptures were perfect.”
