Sam Richardson: Islands, Ice, and Sand

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Sam Richardson (1934-2013), a California native, created small-scaled, finely crafted poetic sculptures that influenced a generation of artists and students and helped push the boundaries of landscape art in the West. The exhibition, which includes Most of that Iceberg is Below the Water (1969) from the permanent collection and works on loan from private lenders, focuses on Richardson’s polyurethane foam, acrylic, and polyester resin sculpture from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. Richardson’s representations of uninhabited landscape and sections of geologic forms carry new relevance as they evoke contemporary questions of environmental change, migration, borders, and home.
