"Sculptor Andrew Wielawski to Destroy Monumental Marble"
2007-01-05 until 2007-01-05
Esplanade Plaza
Marco Island, FL, USA United States of America

Andrew Wielawski of Bedford Hills, NY sledgehammered a 2500 lb. marble sculpture into pieces on January 5th, 2007, in the Esplanade Plaza, on Marco Island. "This artwork did not send any message that I know of to it's intended audience," said the artist. "There's a lot of bad artwork out there, and if these creations don't say anything to anyone, then I think the artists themselves have to assume the responsability, rather than blaming an 'uneducated' public." Andrew Wielawski has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since 2003. Read more about the destruction of Wielawski's own work in his blog on absolutearts.com on Thursday, January 11, 2007.

Mr. Wielawski is an elected professional member of the National Sculpture Society, and a resource for the Fullbright Program in Rome. His work is featured in private and corporate collections throughout the world, and is present in several museums. His most recently produced piece is now in the collection of the singer Andrea Bocelli.

Andrew Wielawski has also been awared First prize in Mixed Media (sculpture and assemblage)by the 2006 International Art Contest sponsored by the ArtDept in New South Wales, Australia. Open for online viewing and voting between August and December each year, the contest includes categories for Realism, Modern, Mixed Media (sculpture and assemblage) and Digital Art with a final selection of entries submitted from all around the world. The category winners are decided by both the public vote and that of a special committee comprised of the entrants themselves, maintaining that the decisions are free from boundaries, politics and bias... resulting in the highest award possible.
