Donal Hord: A Body of Work


Through October 17, 1999 the San Diego Historical Society Museum exhibited original Donal Hord (1902 -1966) works from its own collection, from many private collections, and from other institutions - "the most comprehensive exhibit of this sculptor's work ever staged," according to the Museum. The SDHS has placed images on-line of virtually every known work by this internationally acclaimed San Diego sculptor.

Jennifer Luksic, Exhibit Curator, says: "Hord expressed through his work an intense understanding of the human form and the materials with which he worked."

The San Diego Historical Society Museum is located in the Casa de Balboa at 1649 El Prado, Balboa Park. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 10 to 4:30. Admission charged.
