Spirit Totems: Sculpture by Herb Alpert

In addition to being a world-renowned musician, Herb Alpert has spent more than half his life as a respected abstract expressionist painter and sculptor. Always personal and expressive, Alpert’s sculptures draw interest with their freedom of form. His first totems were inspired by indigenous sculptural forms from the Pacific Northwest, but his Spirit Totems series, with their massive form, became more gestural. These large, improvisational totems include many animal and bird-like forms and reinterpret the traditional totem in an abstract fashion. Walking among these giants is awe-inspiring. Twelve will be displayed outdoors on the Museum’s Sculpture Trail, along with a soundscape featuring Herb Alpert’s music.

Sunnylands – Rancho Mirage, CA:
Reach for the Sky: The Art of Herb Alpert and the Kwakiutl Hunt Family of Canada

Sunnylands exhibition unites the artwork of Herb Alpert and renowned wood carvers from Canada
An upcoming exhibition at Sunnylands, the former winter estate of Ambassadors Walter and Leonore Annenberg near Palm Springs, Calif., will showcase the painting and sculpture of musician Herb Alpert with the works of a renowned indigenous family of master wood carvers from Canada.

The exhibition features carvings from three generations of the Hunt family, the late patriarch Henry Hunt, his son Stanley (Stan) C. Hunt, and grandson Jason Henry Hunt. Members of the Kwakiutl people of Vancouver Island, the Hunts are known throughout Canada for their wood carvings and creation of totem poles. Henry Hunt was commissioned to create a 30-foot-tall totem pole for the Sunnylands golf course in 1976.

Many years ago, while visiting Canada, Alpert was inspired by the soaring Northwest Coast totem poles he saw, and he began to migrate his own sculpture skyward.

Reach for the Sky: Tradition + Inspiration, the Sunnylands exhibition, recognizes the ethereal bridge connecting these four artists.
