Mark Lundeen – Biography

Mark Lundeen is a highly realistic sculptor with a fine sense of detail and creates sculpture with fluid lines, balance and integrity. A native of Holdrege, Nebraska, Mark was educated at the University of Nebraska in Kearney and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. After graduating from college, Mark spent eight months in Europe studying the old masters. In 1981, he moved to Loveland, Colorado, established his sculpting studio and began a highly successful career as a sculptor.

Mark can capture one moment in time and translate that moment into eternity. A natural born storyteller, he stages his artwork around the stories or emotions the characters portray, allowing each viewer to find a different version. His work has a strong physical presence, whether it is an aggressive athlete, a pensive elder or a shy child.

He has received numerous awards and honors that include being selected as the University of Nebraska Alumni of the Year in 1996. He has received the Philip Isenberg Award from the Allied Artists of America in New York City for his sculpture “Ragtime Cowboy Joe” and Westword Magazine of Denver, Colorado awarded him Best Sculpture in a Public Place for “Mighty Casey”. He has also received Best of Show at the Best of Scottsdale Show in Scottsdale, Arizona, for his piece “Monkey Business”.

Magazine articles about Mark and his sculpture have appeared in Sports Illustrated, Southwest Art Magazine, Taos Magazine, Newsweek, Western Horseman, Fine Art Collector Magazine and Revue Magazine. Mark is a member of the Allied Artists of America and was one of the youngest ever selected to the National Sculpture Society.

The most notable of Mark’s work is the sculpture of Jack Swigert, of Apollo 13 fame. Mark was chosen to create the monumental sculpture to be placed in the National Statuary Hall of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Other monumental and life-sized commissioned pieces include placements at Little League Headquarters, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Amarillo International Airport, Amarillo Civic Center, Amarillo, Texas, Arlington Ballpark, Arlington, Texas, Pro Player Stadium in Miami, Baseball Hall of Fame, McDonalds® headquarters, Denver International Airport, and various universities, colleges and libraries across the nation.

"I believed it was a wicked, unjust measure.... I voted against this Indian bill, and my conscience yet tells me that I gave a good honest vote, and one that I believe will not make me ashamed in the day of judgement."
—David Crockett, A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett

In 1830, Davy Crockett was the only member of the Tennessee Delegation to vote against Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act. Crockett's vote was not popular in his own district, and he was defeated in the election of 1831.

The larger-than-life bronze sculpture of Davy Crockett by George Lundeen now stands outside the Alamo in Texas. This sculpture is also available in a smaller, maquette size.

I am interested in purchasing a smaller one of this bronze for my hubs, Joe, who is related to Davy Crockett.

It is the most amazing sculpture in the Alamo garden.
