THE WORKING MODELS: SCULPTURES BY ROBERT MURRAY

Robert Murray’s large abstract sculptures begin with a model. Murray builds the models in his workshop before creating the larger works which require an industrial process involving welders, metal fabricators and painters. The exhibit highlights 8 working models, including the one Murray made for Nimbus in 1977. Author Jonathan Lippincott, whose book, Large Scale: Fabricating Sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s, explores the history of sculptures made at Lippincott, Inc., where Nimbus was fabricated, will discuss Murray’s relationship with Lippincott metal fabrication company.
