Professor Darius A. Spieth's research restores attention to the life and work of Frank Hayden (1936-1988). Hayden was a Notre Dame graduate (MFA '59) and a leading African-American mid-century sculptor of the South. The uniqueness of Hayden’s art is defined by his place at the intersection of Catholic faith, the Civil Rights movement, and the combination of modernist aesthetics with solid craftsmanship.
