Belmont Village Artist Stories Sachs

Bernard “Bernie” Sachs, M.D.: Artist in Residence

Belmont Village Westwood – Los Angeles

“In 1987 I started to sculpt in aluminum and bronze casting and then in 1993 I switched to stone. My best memory was winning first prize at the Art for the Social Justice Competition. It was for a sculpture called Treblinka Fossil #299,873. It represented charred remains of one of the victims recovered in an archeological dig. My last piece entitled was completed in 2002 and weighed 180 pounds.”
