Wednesday, October 14th, 2015
Tedd Pettibon, PCA&D faculty member and sculptor, passed away in 2014. Recently the city of Lancaster installed permanently three of his pieces of art, including Vigilance, in the Sixth Ward Park, East Ross and Hamilton streets in Lancaster City’s North West area. The art was a gift from his estate to the City.
In addition, his “Segments” sculpture has returned to the City – it was on loan for the Art on Orange project in 2010. It is now permanently reinstalled it on Lemon St outside the Queen St Garage.
Tedd was a sculptor and artist specializing in large-scale, industrial materials, including bronze casts, steel, glass, and concrete.
At PCA&D, Tedd taught 3D Design and was the 3D lab tech for several years. Jeremy Waak, Chair, Foundation; Assistant Professor Foundation & Fine Art, said, “Ted was a compassionate but firm teacher who give of himself. He was well liked especially by the students who were sculptors by nature. Several students ended up working with him outside of school, either as assistants or interns.”
