Crowds celebrated the dedication of the Hancock Adams Common in Quincy, MA. The green space, which is over 3 acres in size, features two sculptures by Sergey Eylanbekov, FNSS – one of John Hancock and the other of John Adams. Eylanbekov captured these two founding fathers in over-life-size bronzes.
Eylanbekov began his sculpture and drawing studies in Moscow and graduated with honors from the prestigious Moscow Surikov Academy of Fine Arts. In 1989, Sergey moved to the United States, where he continued working as a professional sculptor. He is currently creating sculptures for the Eisenhower Memorial. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the memorial encapsulates Eisenhower’s legacy in a four-acre urban park at the base of Capitol Hill. The Eisenhower Memorial, which is in Washington, DC, will be completed in 2019, the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
