Dana Younger is a Texas sculptor who earned a BA in Theater from the University of Texas at Austin. His experiences in the theater, as well as in construction and boatbuilding, led him to a career in fabrication. Younger began his work as an artist as a founding partner of Blue Genie Art Industries, an art fabrication company, and the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, an annual holiday art show now in its 18th year. Currently he is the Exhibits Manager for Texas Parks and Wildlife where he works with writers, designers and fabricators to make exhibits for Texas state parks. His sculpture work has been featured in galleries throughout Texas and the US including  the Meijer Sculpture Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan, New Mexico State University, the Louise Hopkins-Underwood Center for the Arts in Lubbock, Texas, Wright State University in Ohio, Purdue University in Indiana, Abilene Christian University, Texas A&M and Stephen F. Austin University in Texas . He says, “Sculpture is a complex puzzle that provides a steady stream of unique challenges to solve, that’s why I love it.”
