MEET THE ARTIST STEVEN WEITZMAN
Founded in 1995, Weitzman Studios, Inc. was established to handle every commission awarded to him for large-scale, site-specific public art installations and to display his vast array of multi-disciplinary artwork from his portfolio. In 2006, the District of Columbia’s Commission on the Arts and Humanities commissioned Steven to craft a statue of the abolitionist Frederick Douglass. On June 19, 2013, this sculpture of Douglass, which stands approximately seven-feet-tall, was dedicated for permanent display and installed in the Emancipation Hall of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, DC.
In 2017, Steven was commissioned by the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create an 8’ tall heroic-sized bronze sculpture of Washington DC’s beloved “Mayor for Life” Marion S. Barry, Jr. A standing commemoration to his life and work, this sculpture was dedicated on March 3, 2018 and has been installed in front of the John A. Wilson Building on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.
