Artist's Biography

     David Wagner received his BFA from the University of Minnesota in 1980 and has spent the following 30 years working in the generation, design, fabrication and installation of large scale architectural art projects throughout the US and Asia. He spent 10 years in Singapore, completing many public art works in SE Asia. Since returning to the US in 1999, he has concentrated on working with architects and contemporary artists to produce large scale public art, specializing in glass and steel. He provides the generation, modeling, architect liaison, engineering, fabrication, and installation of public artwork in collaboration with a wide range of artists, typically working within the artist team format.

     In addition to his work in public art, Wagner has designed and produced many art glass projects for residences in the US and Asia. He often makes extensive use of painting and hand-beveled glass in these projects.

Below is a selection of the public art projects managed, engineered, and installed by David Wagner in the last 10 years.
