PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For the first time in 90 years, the Barnes Foundation is showcasing a contemporary artist, Ellsworth Kelly, from now until Labor Day.
Listen to the podcast below…
Barnes PR Director Andrew Steward says it’s a small collection that’s highlighted by a major piece of art.
“There’s really one centerpiece, which is 65 feet long, and I think it’s about 12 feet high, so it really dominates the collection, and that’s called ‘Sculpture for a Large Wall,’” Steward says.
It’s been 15 years since ‘Sculpture for a Large Wall’ was in Philadelphia, and Steward says you have to see it to believe it.
“It really is a spectacular piece and one that you need to see up close to really appreciate how vibrant and large and dynamic that piece is.”
