Created from a life cast, this portrait retains a sense of the sitters’ loving friendship. In 1995, Rigoberto Torres was an artist-in-residence at the Hudson River Museum, working with the nearby Museum Junior High School (now Riverside High School). Torres collaborated with students on creating sculptures through the process of direct casting, for which he and his mentor John Ahearn are known.
