Jaume Plensa

Jaume Plensa

Figurative sculptor Jaume Plensa is an internationally acclaimed public artist. Best known for The Crown Fountain (2004) in Chicago's Millennium Park - a modern twist on an ancient civic symbol - his two fifty-foot glass towers display video portraits of windy city citizens who playfully spout water down onto the plaza below. Plensa's sculptures invite rumination on the relationship between language and form and are at once specific, anonymous, universal, and tranquil. Plensa's work Humming (2011) is currently installed at DeCordova.

This talk is made possible by a generous grant to deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum from the Grover J. Cronin Memorial Foundation, and is hosted by MassArt. All attendees will receive a free pass to visit the deCordova.
