Historical NoteReturn to Top

Avard Tennyson Fairbanks (1897-1987) was born to John B. and Lilly Annetta Huish Fairbanks. His artistic talent was recognized around the age of twelve when he created his first sculpture, a rabbit, which he entered in the Utah State Fair. A year later he began to copy sculptures from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and was awarded scholarships to continue his studies. Fairbanks' obvious talent later took him to the finest art schools in the United States and France. He was commissioned to create small sculptures, portrait paintings, and heroic-sized monuments as a result of this training. In addition to his sculpting commissions, Fairbanks served as assistant professor at the University of Oregon during the 1920s, received his B.F.A. degree from Yale in 1925, taught sculpture classes at and graduated with a M.A. from the University of Michigan during the 1930s-1940s, and taught at the University of Utah during the 1950s and 1960s. He also received many fellowships to study art in Europe and served as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in various capacities, including creating statues and murals for several temples. Fairbanks and his wife, Maude, had ten children.
