Maybe you’ve seen his portraits of frontline workers in the Chattanooga area during this pandemic.

Or maybe you’ve read about the sculpture he’s working on now - of a Civil War icon known as the “Father of the 14th Amendment.”

Or maybe you’re signed up for his drawing and discussion class online this evening through the Chattanooga Public Library and the Association for Visual Arts.

He is Alex Paul Loza - a visual artist, sculptor and educator - born in Peru and based here in Chattanooga.
