Born in San Francisco, California
One of the most influential artists of the contemporary period, Richard Serra is best known for his monumental sculptures populating cities and landscapes around the globe. Graduating from Yale University in 1964 with both a BFA and MFA, Serra began exhibiting in New York just three years later. Serra was selected to participate in the 1980, 1984, 2001, and 2013 Venice Biennale, as well as multiple editions of the Whitney Biennial. His work is included in many private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Serra continues to live and work in New York City.
