Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden

An installation of “Horizons,” by the Icelandic artist Steinunn Þórarinsdóttir (pronounced Stay-nun Thorens-daughter), will inaugurate GMOA’s Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden, which is dedicated to female sculptors. Þórarinsdóttir has exhibited widely in Europe, Japan and Australia over the last 30 years, as well as in the United States, where “Horizons” has been traveling for the past three years. Previously installed in such contexts as fields, forests, galleries and gardens, 12 androgynous, life-sized, cast-iron figures are connected as a group by a polished glass band inserted across each figure’s chest.
