Robbert Murray and Jonathan Lippincott
Through personal and professional affiliations both Robbert Murray and Jonathan Lippincott share in the history of the first foundry dedicated solely to the production of large-scale sculpture. Founded in 1966 by Donald Lippincott and Roxanne Everett Lippincott Inc. is associated with artists such as Claes Oldenburg, Barnett Newman, Ellsworth Kelly and Robert Murray and helped realize some of the most ambitious sculptures of the 60's and 70's. Murray studied at the Regina College School of Art and attended its summer workshops at Emma Lake. His appreciation for the uniqueness of the Lippincott facility led Murray to be one of the first sculptors to work with this Connecticut foundry. Lippincott, author of Large Scale, grew up around the artistic fervor of his father’s plant. He studied at Swarthmore College and has held positions at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Yale University Art Gallery. Lippincott currently works for Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
