Artist oversees installation of steel pieces at Emerson Umbrella

CONCORD — It was raining hard when David Stromeyer, fresh from hauling thousands of pounds of painted steel from Vermont, put on his work gloves. Some artists — think Tara Donovan or Dale Chihuly — don’t even show up every time their art is installed. Not Stromeyer. At 66, the artist arrived at the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts in Concord eager to get started. He wasn’t here to observe. He was here to lead the installation.

This, he said with a shrug, was out of necessity.
