Sculpture by Richard Griggs

Although artist Richard Griggs would have described himself as a mechanic in his youth, art is in his genes. His great grandfather was James Henry Moser, a well-known Cornwall artist who, among other things, taught watercolors to first lady Caroline Harrison, wife of the 23rd president, Benjamin Harrison. When Griggs got a job with architect and artist, Tim Prentice he couldn’t resist repurposing the scraps from Tim’s work into unique sculptures. This rooftop installation explores the new use of repurposed materials in his playful designs. Image: Richard Griggs, Sketter, n.d., Courtesy of the Mattatuck Museum
