Joop Beljon

The sculptor Lucien den Arend met Joop Beljon for the first time in 1965 during an international sculpture symposium at California State University at Long Beach - the first of its kind in the United States. Lucien den Arend was studying there at that time; fifteen years later he taught at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague under Beljon's direction.

Joop Beljon's homage to Sam Rodia - the creator of Watt's Towers


Joop Beljon's hearts join those which Sam Rodia made throughout the Watts Towers

The university museum's collection of outdoor sculpture began in 1965 with this international sculpture symposium (June 21st through August 14th at California State College at Long Beach, as the name was at that time) - the first of its kind in the United States. Supported by innovative partnerships with local industries, each artist completed one work, which became the property of the university. The result included 10 works spread throughout the 322-acre campus. The collection currently includes works by Kengiro Azuma, J. J. Beljon, Andre Bloc, Woods Davy, Guy Dill, Kosso Eloul, Clare Falkenstein, Bryan Hunt, Robert Irwin, Gabriel Kohn, Piotr Kowalski, Robert Murray, Terry Schoonhoven, Richard Turner, and Michael Davis. Recently, works of Maren Hassinger, Eugenia Butler, and Frederick Fisher have enhanced the collection since then.
