Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa to discuss his work at art museum
TOLEDO — Acclaimed Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa will talk about his work at 6 p.m. March 14, in the Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle. The free presentation is part of the Masters Series sponsored by the TMA Ambassadors.
“Jaume Plensa is one of the most significant sculptors working today,” according to Amy Gilman, associate director and curator of contemporary art at the Museum. “When we chose the location for his piece to be installed at the museum we hoped it would be welcomed by our community.”
“Spiegel,” the newest addition to the Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden, consists of two crouching giants, each measuring just over 12 feet high and lit from within. The two figures are shaped by a steel latticework consisting of individual letters welded together—making no legible sense—from eight different alphabets.
Those attending the Masters Series program can enjoy music and refreshments in the Main Museum Café prior to the presentation. The Museum Store will be open as well. Tickets for the pre-lecture food and one drink — $15 members and $20 nonmembers — can be purchased at the main information desk or by calling (419) 255-7000 ext. 7448.
