This event has ended.

This summer’s Sculpture Garden installation features a selection of abstract geometric works dating from the early 1960s to the late 1980s. Highlights include Tony Smith’s minimalist sculptures "Free Ride and Die" (both 1962), George Rickey’s thirty-five-foot, kinetic stainless steel work "Two Lines—Temporal I" (1964), Mark di Suvero’s recently restored "For Roebling" (1971), and Ellsworth Kelly’s monochrome steel sculpture "Curve II" (1973). In addition to these newly installed works, perennial Sculpture Garden favorites like Barnett Newman’s "Broken Obelisk" (1963–69), Aristide Maillol’s "The River" (1938–39), and Hector Guimard’s "Entrance Gate to Paris Subway (Métropolitain) Station" (c. 1900), remain on view.
