“Mennin would have been useful in the history of Easter Island,” says writer Jack Coraggio. “Endowed with a strong back, artful mind and dexterous hands, they’re his trifecta…making him a sculptor in demand.” Mennin, whose monumental granite, onyx, and marble carvings have been exhibited worldwide, is a graduate of Princeton University. Public commissions are plentiful and include installations at the Chelsea Market, Bruce Museum, Massachusetts General Hospital, and multiple universities stateside as well as “earth stamps” and “cliff carvings” in Ramatuelle and Le Muy, France. He has been featured in numerous publications including the New York Times and Boston Globe. He lives in Connecticut, displaying work on his property and, since 2001, has served as an adjunct professor at the New York Academy of Art.
