Published on the occasion of the August 2000 exhibition at the Brunnier Art Museum. DeLong (research curator at the Des Moines Art Center) records 1,000-plus works of Christian Petersen, highlighting those in the exhibit and confirming the sculptor's significance in American art history. Approximately 150 bandw illustrations of sculptures, models, and drawings capture the beauty of Petersen's artistic gift, and the text reveals his personal story and places him within the context of 20th century American art. The volume also contains excerpts from the Art on Campus Poetry Collection, Petersen's interpretation of America during the turbulent times of the Depression through World War II, and a chronology.
