A pair of monumental works by one of the most influential sculptors working today

Explore two majestic works by renowned artist Ursula von Rydingsvard in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden. First constructed in cedar and then cast in bronze and urethane resin, these lyrical sculptures exemplify the artist’s complex approach to scale, material, and technique. Now, She coincides with a major exhibition devoted to the sculptor’s work at the Fabric Workshop and Museum.
