Sculpture and Drawing with Richard Serra

NOTE: This blog entry is from May of 2011

Few sculptors can claim the renown and success that Richard Serra has achieved in his forty year career.  But a new show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City titled Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective focuses on Serra’s skills on paper, a segment of his work often overlooked by the public.  This is the first retrospective of Serra’s drawings and shows the varied abilities of this visionary artist and runs through August. Serra is much better known for his massive installations made of curved steel. His retrospective Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years was on display in 2007 at the Museum of Modern Art.
