April 28 – August 18

Perkins Gallery

Sculpture has become a common part of modern-day life, coming in all shapes and sizes, from lawn gnomes to mannequins to public art. Sculpture was originally used for religious or political purposes, like the Sphinxes of ancient Egypt or the idols of Mayans or Incas. Sculpture gained popularity in ancient Roman and Greek societies and was explored again during the Renaissance. Since then, sculpture has been increasingly used as an artistic medium. 3-D will showcase sculptures from the museum’s permanent collection.
