Larry Isard Sculptor
Larry Isard lives in Cleveland, Ohio and works at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History. His 51-year career there began in 1947 as a volunteer. During this time he spent 10 years as an exhibits preparer and as a taxidermist and 21 years as assistant director of the Museum. His own interest in the environment and natural history helped created interesting exhibits states Larry in his own easygoing manner.
The magnificent display of dinosaurs and fish in the Kirtland Hall of Prehistoric Life, the extraordinary dioramas of lifelike animal mounts and cultural artifacts in Sears Hall of Human Ecology and the space created for temporary exhibits by the addition of Kahn Hall are just a few of the projects guided by Larry. "Exhibits is the most important division of the Museum," said Larry, who in retirement has returned to the exhibits division s a part-time sculptor and taxidermist.
Larry has put all these years experience together and can be found in his bronze sculptures. The warmth and love of nature is evident in each piece. You can also find a bit of humor in this beauty as found in GOTHIC TWILIGHT and a little mouse he did once as gifts to friends.

As an avid outdoorsman, Larry Isard may have taken life while in pursuit of his one-time passion for hunting, but it was also that time spent in the great outdoors that led him to give something back.From his many years spent in the woodlands around Northeast Ohio, Larry gained a deep appreciation and respect for nature.So much so, that it led to his career as a taxidermist at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and to a second career as a wildlife artist.

In the studio where artist and taxidermist Laurence Isard works at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Isard alone moves and breathes.Each of the bodies around him honors nature from a single, frozen pose.

Now it's time for the honoring of Isard, which the museum is doing through "Animal Expressions," an exhibition of 55 bronze sculptures made over the last 30 years.The show opens with a fund-raising preview party Saturday and remains on view through Sunday, March 23.
In preparation, Isard, 75, has been gathering his bronzes at the museum, where he has worked part time since retiring in 1997.In progress is a new sculpture of a gangly limbed gibbon.Isard hoped to have his wax original finished and then cast at a local foundry in time for the opening of the show, but progress has been slow.
"It's giving me fits," says Isard.
The primate in progress sits on a plywood block.Nearby is a pot of hot wax, for building onto the sculpture, and a small torch for softening areas to be reworked.
Isard has one piece of reference material other artists might not: a gibbon skeleton from the museum's collections."I got this body down in physical anthropology," he says.
Today, the sculptor says he hasn't built the piece up enough around the shoulders, which on a real animal are thick with fur.He'll soon add wax to the upper back and "put a suggestion of hair," Isard says.
