Christopher Saucedo grew up in pre-hip Brooklyn in the 80’s then taught sculpture at the University of New Orleans for 20-years, retiring as Chairperson of the Art Department in 2012. Presently Saucedo lives in two cities, having returned to New York and joining the faculty at Adelphi University where he continues to teach sculpture. He divides his time between Rockaway and New Orleans.

A monumental sculpture, “You Must be This Tall”, remains under construction for the St Claude Art District, also in New Orleans.
