Three monumental sculptures installed on the grounds of the James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, Pa.

"I Set Before You This Day" (left) was installed in 1989 and is on long term loan from Helene and Mark Hankin. Thanks to the generosity of benefactors, "Give Us Grace" (right) and a third sculpture, "Caryatid" (in front of the Museum facing Pine Street) are in the Museum's permanent collection and were placed on Museum grounds in November 2016.
