The Color of Light , 2010

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown; 12th & Leavenworth

Owner: Bluestone Development

Additional Information: "The Color of Light" is a sculpture that uses reflected light to expose the seen and unseen realm in which we live. It captures the essence of community and interaction by drawing our eyes upward. It examines the nature of light and illumination by using light's primary colors: red, green, and blue. Combined, these colors exchange their uniqueness for illumination and energy. Separated, they function as primary components that bring the intangible nature of light into a tangible world of color. This contemporary form mimics the dynamic tension of a kite reaching upward as it flies on gusts of wind. As the sun shines through and illuminates the transparent pieces of glass, it creates a mosaic of reflected squares of color blanketing the earth below.

Additional Information: This piece was donated to UNMC by Fred and Eve Simon. Fletcher Benton is well known for his large metal sculptures, many of which seem to defy gravity in their precariously balanced forms.

These pieces can be found across the country.

by Catherine Ferguson

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown; W. Dale Clark Library 215 S. 15th St.

Additional Information: Totem pays homage to the prehistoric people of central North America who facilitated their economic, social and religious community life by building massive earthen sculptures. The animals shapes depicted in Totem are recorded in the Iowa Effigy Mound Manifestation: An Interpretive Model by R. Clark Mallam, University of Iowa Office of the State Archaeologis; circa 1976. The effigy mounds were earthen representations of mammals, reptiles, birds and geometric forms along the Upper Mississippi River built by hunting and gathering people prior to 1300 A.D. While carefully replicating the ancient shapes of the earth effigy mounds, the contemporary Totem was fabricated of aluminum with the aid of computers and the calculations of engineers. Totem was commissioned by the Omaha Public Art Commission with funds donated by the J. Doe Project.

Untitled , 1981

by John Henry

 

Mediums: Steel

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

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: John Henry is known worldwide for his public works of art, which range in size from small tabletop pieces to some of the largest contemporary metal sculptures in the world. While identified by some in the 1970s as part of the Minimalist movement, the geometric forms that have defined Henry’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism. He has a supreme commitment to the materiality of his work and an unwavering insistence on maintaining the integrity of the process and the materials in developing his visual vocabulary. This piece was a gift from the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1991.
