More than 30 years ago Joe Bologna, a successful San Francisco Bay Area architect, added “sculptor” to his resume.  Naturally, the two disciplines — art and architecture — complemented each other.

Joe is now a full-time sculptor and public artist.   He works with metals, wood, concrete, plastics, LED lighting , water and whatever media will help him realize his next concept. He’s enthusiastic about making sculpture that is approachable, engaging and might prompt smiles from viewers.
