WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3: RICHARD SERRA
Profile America — Sunday, October 3rd. As National Hispanic Heritage Month continues, one of those recognized during the month is Richard Serra, described by art critics as among the most significant sculptors of recent years. Serra was born in San Francisco and studied at the University of California and Yale. He is noted for his large-scale, abstract, outdoor sculptures of rusted steel. Serra achieved notoriety in 1981, when workers demanded the removal of a piece of his from its site in Lower Manhattan. Now, his works are very popular and are included in the collections of many major museums. Richard Serra is among the nation's 213,000 artists, of whom just over 5 percent are Hispanic. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
