As National Hispanic Heritage Month continues, one of those recognized during the month is Richard Serra, described by art critics as among the most significant sculptors of recent years. Serra was born in San Francisco and studied at the University of California and Yale. He is noted for his large-scale, abstract, outdoor sculptures of rusted steel. Several of his pieces have generated controversy but his sculptures generally have been well received, with many on display not only in the U.S. but also in Germany and France. Richard Serra is among the nation’s 195,000 artists, of whom just over 6½ percent are Hispanic.
