(Double Sided Settee - A Trio) , 1983

by Scott Burton

 

Mediums: Granite

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge Street

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Scott Burton’s functional sculptures, which require the spectator’s presence to complete their purpose, transformed the idea of public art. Burton often infused the plain abstract forms of Minimalism with a sense of utility, history, and wit, creating sculptures that could be used as tables and chairs when not on exhibit. His simple forms, cut from smooth and sometimes jagged pieces of granite, can be found with people sitting on them in several cities. Funded with a National Endowment for the Arts, Art in Public Places grant of $22,000 given in 1981 to the Joslyn Art Museum.


22½ Degrees with Crayon Tips , 2009

by Ron Parks

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Discovery Art Garden 2200 Dodge St.

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Omaha artist Ron Parks applies to the creative process the knowledge and experience gained from a 30-year career of inventing, designing, and fabricating in metals. Fusing the fabricated with the natural, each piece invites the viewer to join in by teasing one’s sense of reality. Light strikes angle and veers off; shadow glides along curve; imagination blends with craftsmanship. The Joslyn museum purchased this piece with funds provided by Dr. and Mrs. Stanley Truhlsen.


Able Charlie , 1983

by Kenneth Snelson

 

Mediums: Stainless Steel

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge Street

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Snelson’s work has some consonance with the sculpture of minimalist artists working in the 1960s and 1970s. Preferring materials in their purest state, Snelson used uncolored and untextured stainless steel and aluminum to achieve monumental pieces up to 100 feet on their longest axis that seemed capable of infinite expansion. While the calculations necessary to take dozens of tubes and yards of cable and weave them into an integrated sculpture of taut lines would seem to require the expertise of an engineer, Snelson’s mathematics are, in fact, purely intuitive. Able Charlie demonstrates structural forces of tension and compression. The airy web of lines seems delicate and fragile, yet the physical force binding them together amounts to several hundred pounds of pressure per square inch. Given to the Joslyn museum by Phebe F. Miller in memory of Max A. Miller, E. Stanton Miller, II, and Nancy K. Miller, 1983


Addih-Hiddisch, Hidatsa Chief , 2008

by John Coleman

 

Mediums: Bronze

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge St.

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: The subject of this bronze was also painted by Swiss artist Karl Bodmer in 1834 during his journey to the upper Missouri with German Prince Maximilian of Wied. Addíh-Hiddísch (Maker of Roads) was an outstanding leader—a chief of the village of Awacháwi and a member of the tribal council, which was concerned with the mutual defense of all three Hidatsa villages. He was the keeper of an important medicine bundle and had an impressive war record, having attacked the enemy six times on successful raids without losing any of his own men. The Joslyn museum purchased this piece with funds provided by Suzanne and Walter Scott, 2008.
