Action Abstraction-Sculpture by Bill Barrett

OSU Campus.  Action Abstraction is a year-long display of six bronze sculptures by Bill Barrett, an internationally known artist widely considered one of today’s most celebrated sculptors.  The sculptures, strategically placed across campus, offer our university partners an introduction to public art as well as new opportunities to integrate the artist and his work into classes relating to sculpture, public art, and design.  Barrett’s work exudes movement and energy, along with a calligraphic sensibility.  His bronze sculptures address the relationship between positive and negative space with grace, elegance, and balance.  Through a delicate balance of form and content, the constructions transcend the stark aesthetics of minimalism with warmth and humanity.  Exhibit runs July 01, 2017 to July 01, 2018
