Luminaire

Colorado artist Denny Haskew created the “Luminaire” sculpture that graces the front of the Transpacific Development Corporation office building at Cerritos Towne Center.

A native of Colorado, Haskew received his bachelor of science degree from the University of Utah in 1971, then served two years in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Today he is actively engaged in the art industry as a sculptor.

Since 1994, Haskew has created several monumental compositions spanning the full spectrum of the figurative genre. As a member of the Potawatomi citizen nation, Haskew has created several pieces of artwork reflecting the Native American and southwestern culture, in addition to exploring abstract forms placing emphasis on the qualities of the types of metal and stone used. Haskew's artwork is intensely personal and honest, reflecting recurring themes of spirit, love, forgiveness, healing, endurance and strength.

Haskew's work can be found in many museums and corporate collections throughout the United States. He has been commissioned for several public art pieces across the nation from California to Washington, D.C.
