Angelo Grova passed away peacefully on July 13th, surrounded by the love of family and friends. He worked at UCSC in the bronze casting foundry and taught drawing and sculpture classes for many years, encouraging countless students to greater creative achievement. He founded Art School Santa Cruz and subsequently built Michaelangelo Studios, a gallery he ran for 35 years that promoted the work of hundreds of local artists. He created FashionArt Santa Cruz and celebrated wearable art each September during its 12-year run. You can find Angelo's sculptures throughout the Santa Cruz community, from the healing bell in the Dominican Hospital garden to the 11-foot bronze centerpiece at the Land of Medicine Buddha. Michaelangelo Gallery will show his pieces from his private collection.
