Artist Joseph Schultz completes his model of the USS Constitution

3 min read

Joseph Schultz sticks with a project. It may take a while. Maybe a couple of decades, but the results are great.

Joseph began working on a model of the USS Constitution when he was 15, and he worked on it for several years. He completed it when he was 79. The ship model is currently on display at the River Park Branch Library on Mishawaka Avenue. He turned 80 earlier this year.

Lots happened in between. And Joseph has a story about each part of the journey. Lots of good stories.

His name may be familiar. Joseph is a well-known professional artist in the community. After 35 years in commercial work, he retired in 2005 to paint for the love of it and is recognized for his landscapes.
