The Maryland Institute College of Art alum is an artistic institution all by himself. Streett served as the director of MICA’s Rinehart School of Sculpture from 1959-60. In 2010, he was awarded the Medal of Honor—the College’s highest honor—for his dedication to teaching and excellence in the field. He is one of Maryland’s most prolific sculptors, earning him the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award. His work includes numerous outdoor sculptures in the Baltimore area as well as a gargoyle on the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.
He has exhibited widely, from the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Baltimore Museum of Art to the National Sculpture Society, Equitable Gallery, and the Salmagundi Club in New York City.
