Mario Chiodo is honored to be asked to sculpt a memorial of Morris Hyman, a Fremont entrepreneur with a vision of building a community by investing in the people who live there. The sculpture will be located at a new building under construction for Washington Hospital in Fremont, California. The installation will include a bookcase with replicas of personal items that belonged to Mr. Hyman.

High up on Atlas Peak in the beautiful Napa Valley is the most beautiful cemetery for pets in the country. The owner of Bubbling Well has requested that Mario sculpt Sam the Basset Hound and his adoring friend Cricket the Cat, the icons of the cemetery. Animal lovers will be charmed.

Dale Hardware, the coolest hardware store we’ve ever seen, commissioned Mario to design a unique and endearing sculpture for their store remodel.  Titled Men at Work, these hardworking contractors appear to be building the store’s sign and garden planters at the main entrance in Fremont, California.

Thanks to the generous support of a local foundation, an artwork created by Mario in 2002 will find a home at Ohlone College. The inspiration for Unity came from an illustration done in 1806 by a German illustrator traveling through lands that became California. It depicts Native Americans of different Northern California tribes joining together to celebrate. Mario was intrigued by the possibility that the peaceful gathering signified the beginning of “community.”
