Gadson, a Duke University graduate, has been commissioned to create works of art for many high-profile events and individuals. In 2008 he was invited to create an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree. In 1995 and 1999, respectively, Gadson created two South Florida Super Bowl bronze commemorative sculptures aptly named “The Quarterback” and “The Kicker.” Each sculpture was given to each National Football League team owner.
He has created large-scale works for public spaces including: a stone mosaic wall for the City of Lauderhill, a six foot bronze sculpture as part of a water fountain in the City of Tamarac, Florida; a seven foot sculpture for the E. Pat Larkins Community Center for the City of Pompano Beach, Florida; a nine foot bronze sculpture for Florida Memorial University’s Lou Rawls Performing Art Center in Miami, Florida; and two sculptures measuring 17 feet for the building entrance to the Children Services Council of Palm Beach County, Palm Beach, Florida.
