De Staebler in Motion


Stephen De Staebler is seen and heard here at a dinner celebrating Jane Dillenberger created by David James Randolph at the GTU in Berkeley in 2004. Stephen De Staebler is now celebrated as a great sculptor whose work is featured at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, MOMA New York and internationally. The night of the dinner he moves slowly from the ailment which is then not publicly known. Someone shouts from the crowd, "Your time is almost up ,Stephen." He replies, "It's short." He then offers a tribute which though brief reveals a motivation for his enormous work as an artist, "Words cannot adequately express ..." Stephen De Staebler 1933-2011.
