A Home for Sculpture
December 18, 2012 · Exhibitions, Whitney
Historically, the entryway on 8th Street has always displayed sculpture. From old photographs of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s sculpture in the rounded area in front of the stairs, to busts and marble pieces in the niches; sculpture has always been present. The niches, however, have been empty for far too long. Until today, as I walked in to the School to be pleasantly surprised by several works in the entryway. A large plaster piece, several heads, and a small figure standing in the left niche. Long may this tradition continue.
