Since his early childhood, Christopher Slatoff (b. 1953) has seldom gone for more than a few days without sculpting. Though raised in the abstract and conceptual art traditions of the mid-20th century, Slatoff always focused on the human figure. As his style progressed, he turned to public art. Slatoff specializes in monumental sculpture for universities and churches. His latest work, a twenty-foot tall sculpture of Hecuba, Queen of Troy, was unveiled August 17 at the new USC Village. In 2014, Slatoff completed an 8.5-foot monument of Judge Robert Maclay Widney (1838-1929), the founder of the University of Southern California. In 2012, he created the 13-foot crucifix at the USC Caruso Catholic Center. His upcoming exhibition, Christopher Slatoff: New Bronze Age, at USC celebrates his three works associated with the university.
