Sidney Buchanan is perhaps the best known Nebraska artist working in welded metal sculpture. A former professor of sculpture at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Buchanan’s monumental, imposing public art is on view throughout Omaha. His reconstructed found-art sculptures are shaped from junkyard pieces of steel — 1950s auto bumpers, chunks of locomotives and boilers, and twisted beams from demolished buildings.
This piece was a gift to the Joslyn museum by Philip J. Willson in 2008.
