Sculptor Charles Parks was proud of his home state of Delaware. He lived and worked in Bancroft Mills, a former textile mill on the Brandywine River in Wilmington. Parks worked with bronze, steel, plaster, fiberglass, wood, terra cotta and marble, creating over 500 figurative sculptures during his lifetime, many of which now stand in city squares, on college campuses, in front of corporate headquarters and in private homes. His legacy is prominent in the Brandywine Valley and in his home state, where there are at least 40 public sculptures by Parks.  Parks died on October 25, 2012 at age 90. He is survived by his wife of over 70 years, Inge Parks, along with four children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. 

The new book, Charles Cropper Parks – The Man Behind the Art, brings Parks’ legacy into the hands of those who loved him, knew him and worked with him, and it introduces Parks to those who’ve likely seen his sculptures locally, nationally and around the world, but who never knew the man behind the art.

As an artist, I have to follow the truth, the muse, wherever it takes me...I have done what I really believe deep down underneath.
