Alumni Michael Joseph Hibbard's Outdoor Sculptures Receive Wide Acclaim

Posted: June 3, 2009
Michael Joseph Hibbard, a 2007 graduate of Buffalo State College's ceramic design program, will exhibit his large-scale metal sculptures this month in two outdoor exhibitions.

On June 1, an installation of four of Hibbard's pieces, along with a work by Luisa Caldwell, opened for viewing at Heckscher Park in Huntington, New York. The work will be on display for the next 12 months.

From June 20 to October 31, a solo exhibition of eight works by Hibbard will be held at the Griffis Sculpture Park in Ashford Hollow, New York. The opening reception will be at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 20.

Hibbard's sculptures are massive structures, often reaching over 10 feet high. They are made from angular facets of welded sheet metal and recycled material such as shredded tires and plastic bottles. Hibbard paints his sculptures, at times in a single bold hue, but more often in two colors to emphasize individual planes.

Hibbard’s sculptures have also been selected for many group exhibitions, including two area artist exhibitions at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Diane DeBilzan Gallery in Laguna Beach, California, and the National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts exhibition at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Hibbard's work is also part of many corporate collections.
