David Hess '82


David Hess and his wife, Sally, recently bought another house in Hampden. Over drinks at the Tavern, Dave explained the benefits of having a city location to make his life a bit easier when he wanted to stay in town to supplement his country living at his studio in Phoenix. I did learn, from a friend from graduate school, that Dave was commissioned to create a 70-foot-long, 32-foot-high sculpture arching over the circular drive in front of the Greensboro Science Center. The sculpture ‘Relativity’ took Dave seven months to design and eleven months to fabricate, and is intended to engage viewers’ imaginations and symbolize a spirit of discovery and learning. Dave did have one of the best comments at the reunion. Upon seeing the free hats which sported a “5407” inscription, Dave asked if Gilman was providing hats to celebrate the Jewish New Year.
