PRLog - Mar. 30, 2009 - NAPA, Calif. -- Robert Mondavi Memorial Sculpture Commissioned

Napa, California -- March 28, 2009 -- Quent Cordair Fine Art is honored to announce the creation of a memorial sculpture of the late Robert Mondavi, legendary vintner and champion of the Napa and California wine industries. In honor of her husband, Mrs. Margrit Mondavi has approved the selection of renowned monument sculptor Jay Hall Carpenter for the commission. The ten-foot bronze sculpture will celebrate and memorialize the singular qualities of the man who for decades served as head of the Napa Valley wine community’s extended family. As the anniversary of Mr. Mondavi’s passing approaches in May, he is remembered as an extraordinary leader of vision and energy -- a mentor, inspiration, neighbor, and friend.

Donations to fund the creation of the memorial will be to open to individuals and companies who wish to honor his memory. Interested donors may contact Linda Cordair at 707-255-2242. The location for installation of the sculpture is yet to be selected.

The artist, Jay Hall Carpenter, was elected into the National Sculpture Society before the age of thirty and has won numerous national awards for his sculptures. He served for 20 years as sculptor-in-residence for the Washington National Cathedral. Many American churches contain his work, as do the US State Department, the Smithsonian, Canterbury Cathedral, and the New England Medical Center. Other clients include West Point Military Academy, the Washington Theater Awards, and the State of Maryland. Recent commissions include memorials of Senator Wayne Goode for the University of Missouri, a bronze and granite sculpture of Jim Henson for the University of Maryland, and a memorial sculpture of Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., for the USC film school, commissioned by George Lucas.
