Moment , 2009

by Albert Paley

 

Mediums: Steel

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

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Albert Paley has been heralded for his inventive approach to form development and metal technique in his large-scale sculpture. The site-specific metal assemblages Paley has created over the past three decades place him not only in the forefront of contemporary sculpture but also in the vanguard of artists working in the new, genre-defying area that has been called “Archisculpture.” His inclusion in this group is due to his skill in merging boundaries between the two disciplines and his innovative experiments with environmental and formal considerations. On loan from by Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe, 2010

On The Wings of Angels , 2007

by Littleton Alston

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown; Omaha/Douglas Civic Center, corner of 19th & Farnam Streets.

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: Dedicated on September 11, 2007. Project made possible Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society, the City of Omaha, Mayor Mike Fahey and more than 300 individuals whose hands were cast in the creation of the sculpture. The molds were used to create cast bronze hands, of as many sizes and shapes as there were contributors. The bronze hands are integrated into the sixteen- foot tall stainless steel sculpture. The public sculpture is a tangible reminder of the 911 tragedy and the heartfelt response by the people of our region. The project budget, totaling approximately $55,000, was paid for by funds that were raised from corporate sponsors and private individuals. The expense total was kept to a minimum because of generous in-kind donations and substantial volunteer work by many individuals, including Alston, who donated nearly all of his services.


Pawn , ca. 1980

by Sidney Buchanan

 

Mediums: Steel

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

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: 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.


Plant Life , 2005

by David Helm

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Hilton | Qwest Center; 10th street entrance to Qwest Center 455 N. 10th Street

Owner: Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts

Series: Art 4 Omaha

Additional Information: The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts created the Artist-in-Industry Steel Collaboration Project with Valmont Industries and Qwest Center Omaha as a way to bring dynamic contemporary art directly to the public. Forty-one artists submitted proposals to the Bemis Center’s national sculpture competition. This piece was created by David Helm. The Artist-in-Industry Steel Collaboration Project was made possible by Valmont Industries, who donated resources, materials, studio workspace, access to machinery and fabrication assistance to the sculptors. Most notably, Valmont’s highly-trained technicians Tyler Pearce and Randy Banghart enabled the artists to realize their sculptures at six-times larger than their proposed models, and their expertise enabled the resulting public art to coordinate perfectly with the architecture and atmosphere of Qwest Center Omaha. “Plant Life” took roughly five weeks to manufacture and involved hundreds of components.
