ONEONTA – Since his famous sculptor father’s passing in 2013, David Hayes Jr. of Oneonta has been striving to continue elevating the artist’s legacy, organizing exhibits of David Sr.’s massive metal artworks at prestigious museums around the country.

The younger Hayes’ mission – his father was also named David – will receive a significant boost in the next couple months, when the PBS reality show, “Legacy List With Matt Paxton,” airs on public television stations nationwide, including on WCNY Syracuse on Saturday, March 6, following “Antiques Roadshow.”
