Since 1995, New York-based artist Samuel Nigro has explored the breaking of stone in sculpture, video, performance, writings, and drawings—and most recently (and with the help of a Guggenheim Fellowship) with large blocks of granite.
Samuel Nigro received an M.F.A. in Sculpture from the Art Institute of Chicago (1999), a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame’s Great Books Program (1992), and studied engineering and the pre-medical sciences at the University of Michigan.
