Joe Rundell, World Class Artist Commissioned by Back to the Bricks Committee.
Joe most recently shared the spotlight with Mark Ruess, President of General Motors at Hank Graff Chevrolet in Davison, Michigan.The November 3, 2011 event at the Graff dealership marked Chevrolet’s 100th Birthday. Also joining in on the fun was Pinky Randall, AKA, “Mr. Chevrolet”, and his 1914 Chevrolet Light Six, the only Light Six known to still exist. David Chappell, famous automotive themed artist, and Jeff Anderson, Flint’s own classic car sketch artist attended and displayed their talents as well.
Al Hatch, Chairman of the Back to the Bricks committee had this to say in the BTTB December Newsletter:
“ Speaking of Flint being the birthplace of Chevrolet; did you know that 100% of the profits from last years’ ‘B2B’ memorabilia sales are going towards the purchase of a life size bronze sculptures of Flint’s early automotive pioneers? The first sculpture is none other than Louis Chevrolet. Local sculpture, Joe Rundell of Clio, Michigan will have the clay mold of Chevrolet completed by December 25th which happens to be the birth date of Louis Chevrolet. After the first of the year, the delicate job of transporting the clay mold to the caster will take place and the casting process will begin. We will be targeting mid-April for a public unveiling of the life size statue. With placement in downtown Flint in early summer, another unveiling will take place at that time. In addition to memorabilia sales, we will also be selling memorial bricks to help fund the project. Look for the sales forms to be posted on our website after the first of the year and also on our local media outlets websites. Our next statue will be of David Buick and look for information about Buick in the near future”.
