A Conversation With Nancy Schön

At 93 years young, Nancy Schön lives a life of passion and purpose using her artistic talent to engage the world in public art. You can find her on most days spending hours lovingly laboring over wax and clay in her studio in Newton, MA, creating the beginnings of her bronze sculptures. Although her contributions to public art are many, Nancy is best known for her charming bronze sculptures of Eeyore, Piglet and Pooh at the Newton Free Library, the Tortoise and the Hare at Boston's Copley Square and the iconic Make Way for Ducklings at the Boston Public Garden.

Join your host, Newton Community Pride, for an up close and personal evening of conversation with Nancy Schön. We welcome Jim Braude, host of WGBH Greater Boston and co host of Boston Public Radio, who will interview Nancy about her life in public art, her inspirations, her process, and her future creative plans.
