A lover of the arts in both the public and private sectors, Henry Segerstrom has demonstrated a decades-long commitment to nurturing the cultural life of Southern California through gifts of land and funds, along with commissions of architecture and environmental sculpture for public enjoyment by such renowned artists as Isamu Noguchi, Richard Serra, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, and Jean Dubuffet.
“I feel fortunate to have been so close to so many of these great artists. These men became friends, not just associates. Some, like Henry Moore, we were just lucky to meet in New York,” said Segerstrom. “They were wonderful human beings and there’s something about their instinctive commitment to something new and different that I’ve always liked in dealing with sculptors.”
