Generations

by Josiah Manzi

 

Mediums: Stone

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

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: A member of the Shona Tengenenge Sculpture Village, Manzi’s work evolves from his cultural and spiritual roots. Some of his sculptures lovingly represent a relationship with the world and its inhabitants and are naturalistic statements about the world around him. To Manzi the real world is not always a serious place. He delights in establishing surprising relationships between man and spirit, animal and man, and man and nature. He takes license with accepted notions of reality, and his sculptures are a play on orthodox ideas of form. Smooth and well-rounded, his carvings are stone made flesh: firm, toned, glowing, and smooth. Manzi does not include our view of the world in his art and does not always help us to understand his. This piece was a gift to the Joslyn museum by Richard and Frances Juro in 2007.


House3 , 2010

by Bruce Frasier

 

Mediums: Steel, Stone

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall , near the water, Farnam Street side of the Mall, east of 13th Street

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Sponsored by Bruce Frasier Architects and Artisan Stone Company. Our inspiration comes from the simplest form and idea of a house; four walls, a pitched roof, and a place for shelter. Stone cubes allow for various viewing angles and seating positions amongst a rhythm of metal houses. The houses provide a sense of separation for multiple users; an armrest, a backrest, or a shaded place for man’s best friend. Each unit is offset from the next 6” to create a pattern much like a house-lined street. The red color was chosen to compliment the green landscape. Black and red granite chips in the concrete blend with the red houses to create a unified brutalist design. Wood cube forms are made to the exact shape, poured with concrete, mixed with black and red granite chips for color, once cured, the concrete is lightly sandblasted to create a soft texture. Each finished cube is anchored to the concrete slab with a ¾” coil and epoxy. The joint between the concrete slab and cube is filled with a vulkem based sealant. Each cube weighs approximately 500 lbs. The houses are ¼” thick metal bent to shape. A 1/8” thick coating of rubberized truck bed liner spray is adhered to all surfaces of the house. The coating is soft to the touch and UV protected so the color never fades. Each house is anchored to the concrete slab with four anchor bolts and acorn caps.
