Chuck von Schmidt






A little about me:

Perhaps best known for his crystal sculpture, “The Ideals of Aaron”, presented to Pope John Paul II, in 2005, von Schmidt’s work has also been included in exhibitions in the Anchorage Art Museum, the Islip Art Museum, the Nassau County Art Museum, the Hammond Museum and the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art, as well as numerous other exhibitions around the country.


A graduate of The Cooper Union (BFA, 1973), and Brooklyn College (MFA, 1977), von Schmidt was on Staff and Faculty of both institutions after receiving his degrees.


One of his sculptures was featured in the 1968 Haskell Wexler film: “Medium Cool”, and the following year he won a sculpture award at the Miami Pop Festival.


His 1994 “Luncheon In The Sawgrass”, a monumental scale alligator created for Woodstock ’94 was installed in 2008-2009 in Ellwood Park, Huntington, New York, and in 2009 in Annmarie Garden in Solomons, MD.
