Mission for Muir!

I'm a sculptor who is passionate about continuing John Muir's legacy of preservation and conservation. It is my goal to keep his memory alive through sculpture because he is one of America's most important historical figures. He is a renowned naturalist, explorer, writer, and conservationist who is considered the forefather of the modern environmental movement. However, John Muir is underrepresented in sculpture and I am dedicated to help remedy this. But, I need your help!

I created a bronze sculpture entitled "Mountain Muir" as a tribute to a great hero and champion of the environment.


Your donations will help install this sculpture at the University of the Pacific Library (home of the John Muir papers since 1970). By depicting Muir as the vigorous man of action that he was I hope to inspire all who visit there to pursue their life's passion and to be people of action and change in their lives and in the world around them.

It is my vision and my dream to install life size statues of Muir at Pacific, Muir Woods, Yosemite, and Dunbar, Scotland (his birthplace). Because these places are visited by people from all over the world, Muir sculptures there could help inspire visitors to take the message of conservation and preservation to their home, inspiring nature protection around the world.

For more about John Muir

With your help, this will be the first of many John Muir sculptures/statues around the world. But I need YOUR help to jumpstart this vision and dream!

My goal is to raise $3000 for "Mountain Muir" to be installed at The University of the Pacific. Funding above this will go toward a life-size statue of Muir for installation on the grounds of The University of the Pacific. If we don't reach our goal by the deadline, we will continue to seek to raise funds through other sources.
