About the Artwork

This life-sized metallic form seems to yearn and strain with the emergence of a third arm-his gaze is upward, all arms open to receive.

About the Artist

Cecil Herring
Cecil Herring is a painter, photographer and sculptor with a record of over thirty one-woman shows across the United States, and work in many private collections. A former student at Crealdé, she holds a BA in Humanities. Her contribution to the garden, The Man With Three Arms, began at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna where Herring worked as a sculptor-fellow. The sculpture was inspired by Master Playwright Edward Albee’s play, The Man With Three Arms—a play about fame. Cecil worked for two years to complete the sculpture and realized her sculpture represents “survival as an artist.”
