In 1950, Lyman enrolled at Pratt Institute, where he remained till 1952, when he started to attend Cranbrook Academy of Art. Two years later, in 1954, he left the Academy.
In 1955, Lyman Kipp started to work as a teacher at the Harvey School. At that time, he also began to experiment with large plaster objects and bronze casting. In 1960, he was appointed a teacher at Bennington College in Vermont, a post he held till 1963. While teaching at Bennington, Kipp also found work at Pratt Institute, where he also served as a teacher since 1962 to 1963.
In 1963, Lyman left Bennington College and Pratt Institute to teach at Hunter College in New York, a position he held till 1968. In 1971, Kipp began to introduce colorful planes in his work and started to experiment with nuts and bolts as a means to join the structures. It allowed the pieces to be broken down quickly and increased their portability.
Some time later, in 1975, Lyman was promoted to the post of a Chairman of Hunter College, a post he held during the next three years. In 1985, he became a Professor Emeritus at the same college.
Lyman Kipp co-founded ConStruct, a Chicago gallery, devoted to monumental sculpture. Also, he was a member of Sculptors Guild.
Quotes from others about the person
"Mr. Kipp's sculpture is intensely intimate in nature and concept, and in a curious way it calls to mind the domestic bronzes of the Baroque period. Like those works, Mr. Kipp's pieces are thought out in heroic terms." — John Maxon
Lyman married Erica Stoller on December 24, 1965. Their marriage produced four children — Lisa, Keith, Alison and Ian. Some time later, in 1976, the couple divorced.
