Wah Ming Chang, American, (1917–2003)

Eagle The Guardian

Bronze on wood base
Gift of the artist
Accession Number: 2001.060

Wah Ming Chang grew up in San Francisco, the son of two artist parents who opened a small restaurant on Sutter Street. The Ho-Ho Tea Room became a gathering place for artists and writers in the 1920's. Young Wah Ming showed artistic genius as early as age seven when he was welcomed into a circle of working artists which included Maynard Dixon and Ralph Stackpole. He spent much of his adult career designing sets and special effects for Hollywood.

In 1970, Chang and his wife moved to Carmel Valley where he became engrossed in environmental issues. He started to create small sculptures, such as this elegantly simple bronze eagle, to focus attention on endangered wildlife.
