Jaume Plensas Spiegel Sculpture

Jaume Plensas Spiegel Sculpture

at the Toledo Museum of Art/Toledo Museum of Art, Monroe Street, Toledo, OH, United States/Here is the description of this sculpture copied from the TMA's website: The Toledo Museum of Art has acquired Spiegel, a monumental, two-part stainless steel sculpture by the acclaimed Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa. Its acquisition was made possible by a generous local donor who wishes to remain anonymous.Showcased last year in an exhibition of the artist's work at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in West Bretton, Wakefield, UK, the work is being installed in the Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden which surrounds the Museum. Composed of two figures, each measuring just over 12 feet high and lit from within, the sculpture will be located in front of a small ridge near the intersection of Monroe Street and Collingwood Boulevard. Since our founding in 1901, the Toledo Museum of Art has earned a global reputation for the quality of our collection, our innovative and extensive education programs, and our architecturally significant campus. More than 30,000 works of art represent American and European painting, the history of art in glass, ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian works, Asian and African art, medieval art, sculpture, decorative arts, graphic arts, and modern and contemporary art. To accommodate the ever growing collection and demand for art education, the Museum campus has grown exponentially since its founding. From its humble first exhibition space in two rented rooms, the Museum has grown to cover approximately 36 acres with six buildings. The main Museum building interior contains four and a half acres of floor space on two levels. It has 45 galleries, 15 classroom studios, the 1,750-seat Peristyle concert hall, the 176-seat Little Theater lecture hall, the Resource Center for Educators, the Family Center, the Visual Resources Collection, the Museum Café, and the Museum Store featuring Collector’s Corner. www.toledomuseum.org
