How to Design a Stone Wall in a Stone Park
From the beginning, Stone Wall was a sculpture park.
Its founders wanted to build a world where people could build art with their bare hands.
After decades of building artworks with hand tools, the park’s founder, Dora Cone, realized the art of building a wall was no longer confined to art.
Cone turned to the power of a machine, which she created and installed at the park.
The machine took the form of a giant steel plate that she would mount on top of the wall.
The result was a wall that was just as durable as the art she was building.
Today, Cone’s work is considered one of the most iconic pieces of art in the world.
And since the park opened in the early 1980s, she’s become an icon for both the country and the world, as she’s inspired countless people, including artists, sculptors, and politicians.
Creme, born in Athens in 1915, studied sculpture and met Dora while she was studying at the Sorbonne.
They married in 1928 and moved to France, where Dora died in 1978.
In 1988, she started a company called Creme Art and soon became one of Europe’s most successful art dealers.
Cremes first successful art sale, the first of her career, was in 1985, when she sold over 200 pieces of work, including works by Picasso, Gauguin, and Caravaggio.
Her collection grew to more than 1,000 works, which included works by Van Gogh, Picasso and Renoir, and was the largest in Europe.
Chere’s legacy continues to be the work of her son, Artur, who has also been a successful art dealer.
Credentials include a master’s degree from the Sorboude School of Art and a PhD from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.
She was also named a Visiting Professor of the Department of Fine Art at the University of Toronto in the same year she received her doctorate.
Cante’s work has been exhibited around the world and has been published in more than 40 languages.
Artworks that Chere and her husband created are displayed at the New York Museum of Art.
In 2007, she was selected as a recipient of the National Medal of Arts from the Academy of Arts and Sciences.
