Milton Hebald

Milton Hebald was born in New York City on May 24, 1917. He made the bust of the famous American tenor Richard Tucker that sits in the small triangular park bounded by West 66th, Broadway and Columbus Avenue, across from Lincoln Center.

He studied at several New York art school, including the School Art League, the Art Students League, the National Academy of Design and the Beaux-Arts Institute.

Hebald was awarded the prestigious Prix de Rome Fellowship to the American Academy in Rome in 1955, 1956 and 1957. Hebald stayed in Italy, living near Rome, until 2004 when he returned to the United States. Hebald now lives in Los Angeles, according to his daughter.

A biography on his Web site lays claim to 23 public monuments in New York City alone, including the bronze pieces "The Tempest" and "Romeo and Juliet" in front of Central Park’s Delacorte Theater, and the 220-foot, 12-piece "Zodiac Screen" (at the time, the largest sculpture in the world) commissioned by Pan-Am for its terminal at J.F.K. and now owned (and kept in storage) by the New York Transit Authority.
