Sculpture Garden Series: Mary Day, Sculpture Let It Be A Dance

May 20 – October 5, 2014 —

Mary DayOmaha artist Mary Day has created nine three- to five-foot high woven reed cylindrical forms, reminiscent of baskets, which are placed amongst the foliage in MONA’s Hillegass Sculpture Garden. This body of work is inspired by primitive objects and personal reflections of joy and sorrow. The artist finds great metaphorical significance in the vessel-like form and the reed material and invites the viewer to contemplate both.
