Cyrus Dallin (1861-1944) was a celebrated American sculptor, teacher, and social justice advocate. Dallin is known for some of America’s most iconic public monuments, including Appeal to the Great Spirit in front of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Paul Revere in Boston’s North End, and Massasoit Ousamequin in Plymouth. Born in Springville, Utah in 1861, Dallin moved to Boston at the age of eighteen to study sculpture and later settled in Arlington, Massachusetts. During his forty-year tenure as an instructor at the Massachusetts Normal Art School (now MassArt), Dallin, who was called “Cyrus the Great” by his students, mentored a generation of Boston sculptors.

You may bring a bagged lunch or snack to enjoy while you experience the lecture series. We have Patuxet Cafe, in the Visitor Center.
