Herb Goldman † | Detroit, MI
Herb Goldman (1922-2012) was born in Detroit, Michigan. He served in the navy during WWII, then studied for a BFA at the University of New Mexico. He was known for his giant architectural sculptures, the best-known of which is the sculptural building on Donald Anderson’s property called The Henge, strongly reminiscent of the prehistoric English monument Stonehenge, and now housing a personal collection of art and murals. Herb stayed with Donald Anderson for six months while constructing The Henge a few years before the residency program was founded. He planted the seeds of what developed into that program and is considered RAiR’s inception Artist-in-Residence. Herb completed over ninety commissioned sculptures in the United States and abroad.
