The Art of Boat Building is a professionally produced video series about the creation and construction of wooden boats. Using a combination of traditional and modern methods, this hands-on approach will focus on the aesthetics and beauty of wooden boat building. Join Bob Emser as he leads us through the process of boat building through the eye of an artist and craftsman.

Bob Emser is an internationally lauded sculptor, having artwork on 5 continents, in 8 countries and 27 states in the U.S. His extensive body of work, dating back to 1978, can be seen in cities and municipalities, sculpture parks, museums and institutions of higher learning. During his 40+ year career he has served as a visiting artist and has taught at several universities, held a tenured professorship, and founded a not-for-profit art center that is still in existence. He has also served as the executive director of Chicago’s international sculpture exhibition, Pier Walk. He was the founding president of Chicago Sculpture International, the local affiliate of International Sculpture Center, on whose Board of Directors he has served. Emser’s sculpture has always been inspired by the construction and aesthetics of boats and their close cousin aircraft.
