R. B. Monument, 2004
Dan Ostermiller (b. 1956)
Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Dan Ostermiller focuses exclusively on animal forms, creating large-scale sculptures in bronze. The son of a taxidermist, the artist closely studied anatomy, and in his sculptures emphasizes the attributes of each animal. In R.B. Monument (the initials R.B. refer to the artist's friend), Ostermiller creates an image of a dramatically oversized rabbit with exaggerated form and a calm, nonplussed expression.
Gift of Anson and Debra Beard, Jr. 2010
