Mico Kaufman (1924-2016)
In Memoriam

It is with sadness that we share the news that our colleague, Mico Kaufman, passed away on Monday evening, December 12th. Kaufman became an elected member of National Sculpture Society in 1968, a Fellow in 1987. Much of his artistic work was focused on numismatic art, both coin and medal. He completed medallic commissions and Presidential and Vice-Presidential Inaugural Medals for Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. Bush. Read more about Kaufman’s life and work here.  In early 2016, Kaufman published a biography, A Chiseler’s True Story: The Art of Mico Kaufman.
