Price is a contemporary steel sculptor, with an interest in the challenges of raw material against forces of nature. His work has reached heights of 35 feet and weighed 7.5 tons. Price’s work may be seen in many public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, notably in the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the PepsiCo Collection in New York.
“This piece is a fantastic addition to the collection at Pyramid Hill. It is an interesting and dynamic piece. It adds to the collection in a wonderful way. This sculpture was built in 2004, so we’re keeping up with contemporary sculpture trends, and I think it’s really important to keep growing our collection, but growing our collection in very mindful way with a focus on collecting accomplished and cutting-edge sculptors,” FitzGibbons said.
Price lives and works between Orange County, California and New Bremen, Ohio. Price’s documentary, “Art in the Middle” follows the creation of a five-ton sculpture titled “Amore,” the last piece in a series, completed for a year-long exhibition at the Dayton Art Institute. His work has been featured in a solo exhibition at the University of Cincinnati, among countless other solo, two-person and group exhibitions. His body of work also includes many corporate and commissioned pieces.
