Additional Information

Harry Bertoia’s sculpture entitled “Sunburst,” created in 1963 of gold-plated stainless steel was originally made for the Edward Durrell Stone Building in Los Angeles. The sea air and salt water proved harmful and an indoor location was needed. The Joslyn Art Museum acquired the piece in 1972. It was relocated to Abrahams Branch when the museum’s fountain court was remodeled. The atrium at the new library was designed specifically for “Sunburst.”
