The giant black earth like forms outside of the Daniel Libeskind’s Hamilton building of the Denver Art Museum are the work of world renowned sculpture artist, Beverly Pepper.
I think the sculptured towers are fascinating and create a nice complimentary texture and color contrast to Libeskind’s silver titanium panels.
Pepper is known for her monumental works and her concept of “Earthbound Sculptures,” creating environmental pieces that appear to come out of the ground.
The sculpture is two separate elements rising to 42 feet and 32 feet in height and weighing a whopping 155,000 pounds. If you look closely you can see a woman standing in front, providing a sense of how massive they are.
I’m a fan.
