Event to celebrate ‘Breach’

A dedication ceremony for the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery’s newest outdoor sculpture, “Breach,” will begin at 4 p.m. June 15 and is open to the public. The dedication will be followed by a picnic supper under the sculpture at 5 p.m. Attendees will be able to meet the work’s creator, New York artist Roxy Paine. The evening will also include live music and a silent auction.

‘Breach’ was installed south of Andrews Hall in late April.

The sculpture dedication, featuring comments by Sheldon director Janice Driesbach and Suzanne Wise, director of the Nebraska Arts Council, is free. Tickets for the picnic supper are $25 for adults and $10 for children age 12 and younger. For more information and to reserve tickets, call Monica Babcock at 472-2463.

“Breach” is a 42-foot-tall stainless steel tree in Donaldson Garden, south of Andrews Hall. The sculpture, the artist’s first major commission in this region, reflects Paine’s interest in exploring interactions between nature and artifice in our environment. The trunk and branches were shipped to Lincoln in early April and assembled by Paine and a work crew on campus.
