Jay Moss, Bronx Sculptor, Shows His Stuff

20 Oct

My dad, Jay Moss, is a 91-year-old World War II vet. A sculptor, in relatively good shape, he’s still at it in his Riverdale apartment.

An opening of his first exhibit in about 13 years — Sculpture and Social Consciousness — will be at Manhattan College in Riverdale, this Wednesday evening (10/22) from 4 to 7 p.m. (It’s in the Alumni Room of the O’Malley Library, 1st floor, Room 100. Guards at the college entrance can send you in the right direction to park, walk, etc. Address is 4513 Manhattan College Parkway. Here’s a map.)

My dad’s work is not all, or directly, focused on war, but most of the art you’ll see is simply not what it would be if he missed the war age-wise or otherwise.

I love his work more than ever.

Here’s just a few of the 40-plus sculptures in the big show:
