About Jon-Joseph Russo

Jon-Joseph received his BFA in Sculpture from SUNY Alfred University and lived and exhibited in juried group exhibits in Brooklyn, NY and worked as a carpenter. Russo then completed a Master of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University, combining sculpture, drawing and construction skills. He also studied at the Cornell Architecture Program in Rome, with an emphasis on the Classical Period. He apprenticed with DC sculptor Ray Kaskey for three years, as well as designed gardens and furniture in stone. Russo’s favorite artist is Michelangelo, and his artwork encompasses the power of expression in the human form.

Russo’s work has been exhibited at Pope John Paul II Center Museum, DC, Project Space DC Arts Commission, Shumacher Gallery, OH, Walker-Kornbluth Gallery, NJ, and is held in private collections in South Korea, Mexico, New York, and the Washington, DC metro area. Commissions include Madonna and Child at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Russo was a selected finalist for several DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities projects. Russo has taught sculpture at WSS for multiple years.
