Smith's exquisite bronze sculpture is located in hundreds of public and private collections worldwide, in museums and public squares throughout the entire United States and many countries. His representations of families, mothers, and children in sculpture have become a national treasure.
Smith is as much a philosopher as he is an artist. His figurative sculpture is a window into who he is and views on life. This is expressed through the spontaneity of children, reflections of the past, and hopes for the future. We often see this represented through the innocence of childhood. For Smith, the child is a metaphor for life; as children's lives, as they explore the world around them, parallel our lives as adults as we discover our identity in this universe. Each piece Smith captures this spirit, still vibrant and alive, capturing a true likeness or feeling in it's moment of discovery.
