David Hayes (March 15, 1931 – April 9, 2013) was an American sculptor.

Life[edit]

Hayes received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1953, and a M.F.A. degree from Indiana University in 1955 where he studied with David Smith.

Smith pioneered sculpture in metal and Hayes also made his sculpture using metal, formed in graceful curves, shapes abstracted from sketches of objects and ideas.[1]

He received a post-doctoral Fulbright Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He was a recipient of the Logan Medal of the Arts for Sculpture and an award from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. During his life, he had 300 exhibitions and his work is included in 100 institutional collections including those of the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

In 2007, he was conferred an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by Albertus Magnus College.

Hayes resided in Coventry, Connecticut since 1958, where he had 57 acres of land to exhibit his works.[1] He died of leukemia at his home there on April 9, 2013. He was 82.[2] [3]
