How does a museum determine if a sculpture must stay in the galleries or if it can go outside? Today, we explore the differences in construction of indoor and outdoor sculpture, and celebrate some new work coming to #fwmoa!
Happy Halloween! Looking for something spooky to do today? Grab a pumpkin and carve a jack-o'-lantern inspired by the #FWMoA collection.
We're relieved this week, because we finally get to talk about relief sculpture! Want to experience it in person? Come visit us to see Indiana artist Dale Enochs' sculptural exhibit, "Static Energy", now on view.
Today’s ‘treasure’ is a little different than others we’ve selected. Dale Enochs’s Double Exposure is set apart from other treasures we’ve featured because they don’t often leave the vault. On the contrary—this sculpture is permanently installed in our atrium! It may seem as though I’m betraying the identity of this blog series, but I ask you this – how often do we become so used to seeing a work of art that we no longer take notice of its presence? My task today is to compel you to give this particular work a second look.
