This year's lecture will feature Maryland-based sculptor Toby Mendez, who specializes in creating classical figure sculptures with a contemporary edge. Mendez has a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and apprenticed under Academy Award-winning makeup sculptor John Chambers.
In the last 25 years, Mendez has produced more than 20 sculptures of famous individuals for use at public monuments and historical sites, including Thurgood Marshall, Don Shula, Mohandas Gandhi and Major Taylor, among others.
In addition, Mendez has also created bronze sculptures for the Baltimore Orioles, the Boston Red Sox and the Thurgood Marshall Memorial. He accepts both public and private commissions and is currently working on a large relief for the Washington County Free Library in Hagerstown.

Sculptor Toby Mendez, who also created "The Teammates," hit an outside-the-park home run with this one.
But if the statue shows us a familiar Yaz, it was a somewhat unfamiliar Yaz who spoke to the gathering. Let us first note that fellow Hall of Famer Jim Rice illustrated that he learned so much more from Yaz than playing caroms off the Green Monster when he told the gathering, "I'm not going to bore you.

Sculptor Toby Mendez says to meet him at the New Arts Foundry in Hampden. Foundry. The very word seems of another century in an age where everything is of molded plastic and made in China. It's a hot, dirty, and noisy place where 15 skilled workers cast and assemble statuary. There are sand blasters, grinders, and pots of molten bronze at more than 2,000 degrees. Mendez, bespectacled and in a bright polo shirt just this side of peach, emerges from the din to suggest we talk at a coffee shop-not so much because of the noise level in the modern-day Vulcan's forge, but out of fear that a reporter might get a sneak peek at the poses.
You see, Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr. lie dismembered within, the last of six statues of Hall of Fame Orioles that the team commissioned Mendez to create in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards.
It takes some shoehorning to get Mendez into this City Folk column, as he was born in Denver and has lived most of his life near Frederick. But he is a homer in one crucial sense. In his 25-year sculpting career, he has been called on to capture many an epic figure, including Thurgood Marshall and Mahatma Gandhi. But while he never got to hear Marshall argue before the Supreme Court or see Gandhi stare down the British Empire, he has been an O's fan since the mid-1970s. Periodic family ballpark outings to Baltimore allowed him to see five of his six subjects in the flesh and on the field. (Only Frank Robinson's playing days were missed.)
"As a kid, watching Murray come up in the clutch situation, I remember it was like the cavalry arriving," Mendez says.
Working with the Orioles' exhaustive photo archives, Mendez's mission was to fashion iconic poses for each player.
Mendez then fine-tunes the foam model by hand before handing it over to folks at New Art for the hot and noisy business of making molds, pouring in the molten bronze, and building and buffing the finished piece.
Mendez's artistic abilities first emerged in boyhood. During his high school years, he came to Baltimore each summer to participate in an arts program for gifted and talented kids held at Goucher College.

Featuring new works by Tony Mendez (painting), Jonna Mendez (photography), and Toby Mendez (Sculptor)
Mendez was chosen several times to be in the top 100 for the prestigious National Arts for the Parks competition. Most recently, he was selected by the new Cumberland Valley Medical Complex in Cumberland, Maryland and the new Meritus Medical Center in Hagerstown, Maryland, to feature his paintings of Washington County, Maryland.
They have held these shows for twenty-five years, along with their son Toby Mendez, a well-known sculptor.
Toby has been creating sculpture for three decades. Known on a national level for his monumental and public work. Toby has focused on the figure, always exploring new ideas through his gallery work and incorporating these approaches in his public work. He works with a variety of traditional materials, working first in clay and then casting in terra cotta, bronze and cast stone. Toby will be showing some maquettes of some recent public works along with some of his newest gallery works.
