History

In the Works…


It has been a busy couple of weeks, but I am working on something special that will be published soon. I am by no means an art snob, so I surprised myself when I stumbled into an artist whose work I really admire. The Italian-American artist Alfonso Iannelli sculpted some impressive pieces right here in Oshkosh. These local sculptures will be the subject of my next historical post. Stay tuned….

Sprites designed by sculptor Alfonso Iannelli originally installed in 1914 at Midway Gardens in Chicago. These sculptures were saved from the demolition and later given to the Arizona Biltmore Hotel.
