Saying Goodbye to a Sculpture Trail Artist

Wareham with Without a Shout
Without a Shout

William Wareham was an early participant in the sculpture trail showing in the 2004 exhibit with his pieces “Aronizarung”, and “Without a Shout”, which won Best of Show and was donated to the city of Cloverdale when the exhibit ended and is still there.

With is celebration of life on July 15th, it’s a great time to remember Wareham and all he did. He taught at various Bay Area colleges and his work is included in the collections of the SF Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum of California, San Francisco State University, City College of San Francisco, San Pedro Harbor, Mare Island Shipyard, and in private collections. San Francisco Mayor London Breed presented him with an Honorary Award at a city celebration in 2019 for the installation of his large-scale sculpture at Hunters Point. One of his primary intentions was to transport the viewer to a new place by activating negative space and contrasting scale through steel. Something that shows in “Without a Shout”.
