Frank is well respected in the art community as attested by the following:

  • "Mr. Brozman's work varies as widely as his personality.  It is 'constantly changing' as he pursues and explores new areas in the realm of sculpture.  He is largely self taught and has accomplished much since beginning this new chapter in his live.  His work is evidence of the joy that he derives from sculpture, as it is marked by his whimsy and humor.  Mr. Brozman works in both steel and stone.

    Mr. Brozman's background is in marketing and engineering, yet he grew up in a family that boasts of artists.  His commitment to the arts is evident not only in his work but in his participation and support of arts organizations and his interest in the work of other local artists.   This opportunity (referring to Frank's internship instruction at the Sculpture Center) is another example of his willingness to participate in and encourage the arts and the art making process." - Nathaniel Parsons, Exhibition and Programs Coordinator, The Sculpture Center Cleveland, Ohio.
  • "During my visit (to Smart T-Art Gallery, in Cleveland, Ohio), the featured artist was Frank Brozman, a Clevelander who in an earlier life produced music videos for James Brown and other luminaries.  His elegant stainless-steel-glass sculptures were world-class works." - Gary Lee, Washington Post Staff Writer.  Excerpt from October 5, 2003 article, Welcome to the Culture Club.
  • "Frank's work has very similiar characteristics to renowned sculptor David Smith." - Annoymous Collector

Special Note:  On October 9th, 2010 with his marriage to his wife Karen, Frank began using his birth name of Maglio in honor of his artistic family heritage.  All current and future works will carry the Maglio name rather than Brozman.
