About the Artist

Paul DiPasquale investigates and produces public sculpture about history and the people who made it.

The following are his major public sculptures:

  • 'Connecticut': In January of 1983, The New York Times printed a picture and story of Connecticut underway in DiPasquale's studio; it was about to be the only monument to Native Americans in the Capital of America. It was financed through the sale of 'etching dividends' by the artist. After the D.C. debut and two year tenure. It was purchased for Richmond's baseball "Diamond." Twenty seven years later, Odell Architecture purchased the well known roof top monument and installed it on their East Cary Street Lucky Strike building where it overlooks 'Indian Territory' once again.

  • The Headman: On Brown's Island in Richmond in bronze; the competition subject was to honor the African American contribution to the Kanawha Canal System. It was installed in 1991.

  • The Arthur Ashe Monument: on Richmond's Monument Avenue for which the artist was chosen Richmonder of the Year in 1996 by Style Magazine.
