Dialogues on Art

  • 2010-11
    On Sculpture | Organized by Laura Gilroy '11
    A group of students and professors (Hannah Garner '12, Rachel Cholst '11, Tom Apicella '12, Ellen Freeman '11, Visiting Assistant Professor of Fine arts and Mellon Post-doctoral Fellow John Muse, and Assistant Professor of Chemistry Joshua Schrier) traveled to the Storm King Art Center, a 500-acre sculpture park in the Hudson Valley, for its 50th anniversary. The group wandered from the paths through the woods to see the sculptures up close. The post-trip discussion at Ekta Indian restaurant in Bryn Mawr revolved around the unique way the sculptures at Storm King work with the elements and engage with their natural surroundings. Agreed-upon highlights included a mile-long winding stone wall by land artist Andy Goldsworthy, a cube by Menashe Kadishman that created the optical illusion of being suspended in midair, sheets of steel that sliced through the hillside by the famous sculptor Richard Serra, and a chair made out of welded-together JFK half dollar coins by an artist named Johnny Swing.
