James Jefferson Community Leader
Commissioned to make a lifelike portrait of James Jefferson in bronze, Dina Angel-Wing had only a few weeks to create her interpretation of the influential civic leader for a memorial held in the rotunda of SF City Hall. She presented a clay bust at the ceremony which was later cast into the final bronze. It was based on a collection of personal photographs and interviews. Upon the final unveiling, the work conveyed both his personality and likeness for visitors.
