Jerry McKenna

Jerry McKenna, 73, began dabbling in bronze statues when he was 42. Ten years later, after retiring from the Air Force, he decided to “go pro” and pursue a career as a full-time sculptor. Today, the prolific artist has placed statues and monuments throughout America and the rest of the world.

Twenty-eight of his sculptures are scattered across the campus of the University of Notre Dame, which happens to be his alma mater, and almost thirty of his busts are installed in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio – including Lawrence Taylor, Lynn Swann, and Tony Dorsett. McKenna’s portfolio also includes the well-known tableau in Alton, Ill, which depicts the famous Lincoln vs. Douglas debate, along with numerous religious and military sculptures.

Stevens Art Foundry is honored to have cast all of Mckenna’s bronzes, and the relationship continues today with his latest larger-than-life bronze scheduled to be cast in early 2012.
