This event has ended.

Three sculptures by Mark di Suvero are on view in the multi-story, glass-enclosed atrium designed by architect Renzo Piano. The exhibition is the first of contemporary sculpture at the Morgan. The works include one large piece, Homebody, created in 2004, and two smaller works, Heraldic Bourgogne, (1995) and Sandwich 1 (2007). All were created using Mr. di Suvero's signature medium—steel and stainless steel. Mr. di Suvero and Mr. Piano are longtime friends and in May 2009 participated in a discussion panel at the Morgan on the relationship of art and architecture. Shortly after the completion of Mr. Piano's expansion of the Morgan in 2006, the architect suggested that one day he would like to see how sculpture by Mr. di Suvero would look in the new atrium. The sculptor and the architect, along with Morgan curators, selected the three works and chose the locations for installation.
