Forrest “Frosty” Myers is an American sculptor best known for his artworks the Moon Museum (1969) and The Wall (1973), the latter being a monumental sculpture on the façade of a building in the SoHo, Manhattan neighborhood of New York. Myers studied at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1958 to 1960 and moved to New York City in 1961, where he was a founding member of The Park Place Gallery cooperative, where the emphasis was on cutting edge geometric abstraction. Myers was also an early adopter of new technology in his work; he was the first artist to use lasers. He was deeply involved with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), with major contributions to the group’s pavilion at Expo ’70, the world’s fair in Osaka, Japan.
This project was made possible, in part, through a grant from the Lilla B. Morgan Memorial Endowment, which works to enhance the cultural development and atmosphere for the arts at Colorado State University. This fund benefits from the generous support of all those who love the arts.
