DESCRIPTION

The Frost Art Museum and FIU's Sculpture Park will welcome the addition of 11 monumental sculptures for an unprecedented outdoor exhibition for the fall-winter season. The works originated in the United States and have travelled from their original installation in St. Urban, Switzerland, and Sarasota's Season of the Arts. Made of a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, cast fiberglass, copper, concrete, wood and rubber tires, each work represents the best of contemporary sculpture through its most recognized artists and the diversity of styles, themes and technical approaches that characterize our times. Artists include John Henry, Albert Paley, Dennis Oppenheim, Chakaia Booker, and Verina Baxter.
