public works

william Tarr  MLK

 William (Bill) Tarr (1925 – 2006) was a sculptor, painter, photographer, magician, bestselling author, husband, father, and dedicated artist for over 50 years. His monumental public works have been seen by millions from all over the world, and his 30 x 30 x 30 ft. welded steel memorial to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King is perhaps New York City’s most renowned public work. Yet, Bill remains relatively unknown.
