HARTFORD HISTORY CENTER
LAUNCHES ITS NEWEST BOOK!

The Hartford History Center at Hartford Public Library is launching its newest book:
In the Grand Tradition, The Enduring Art of Elbert Weinberg, written by graphics curator Nancy Finlay
and published by Wesleyan University Press.

Internationally renowned sculptor Elbert Weinberg (1928-1991) was a Hartford native and now a major collection of his sketchbooks, photographs, and personal correspondence have been gifted to the Hartford History Center. This extraordinary gift, the genesis for our book, offers a window into the working life of a successful artist. Elbert Weinberg, a graduate of Weaver High School, had a studio in the Colt Building for many years, and explored many subjects in his sculptures, including the suffering of the Holocaust, politics, mythology, and the joy in human nature.
