Van Sant (born 1931) is a sculptor, painter, environmental planner, and architectural designer as well as a muralist. He has executed more than 60 public murals and sculptures around the world over the last 35 years. He earned a B.A. from Stanford University in 1953, and an M.F.A. from Otis Art Institute in 1957. He was one of the founders of the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in more than 15 solo shows in the United States, Europe, and Australia. In 1989 he co-founded Eyes on Earth, a non-profit corporation focused on environmental issues, and shortly thereafter created the Van Sant Geosphere, a 24-foot electronically-controlled replica of our planet that has received international attention and acclaim. (Robin K.
