Stephen Glassman



Urban Air creator and LA-based sculptor Stephen Glassman first caught international attention in the early 1990's when he began creating freeform, large-scale bamboo installations in urban sites devastated by the Rodney King Riots, Malibu Fires and Northridge Quake. These works became local symbols of resiliency as well as a springboard for the permanent, monumental-scale public works he creates today – art for art’s sake in a social context. Stephen’s work has been published worldwide, and been awarded with an NEA / White House Millennium Fellowship, a Chrysler Design Award nomination, the London Int’l Creativity Award, and more.
