Happy 76th birthday to French conceptual artist Bernar Venet!

Venet never made preparatory drawings and described each sculpture he created in his 'Indeterminate Lines' series as the result of improvised, intuitive, empirical work. This sculpture highlights the use of industrial material, bent and twisted, to imitate a drawn line.

Happy birthday today to the imaginative artist Joan Miró, born on this day in 1893! In his piece 'Woman with Bird' in our Sculpture Park, the body of the figure derives from an old milk stool and the head from the lid of a can. Shared with his two-dimensional works, his sculptures are frequently brightly painted vibrant colors contributing to the visual energy, even playfulness, of the work.

"Seeing his work in person gave me a newfound appreciation of Ai Weiwei as an artist. His versatility—mastery of both traditional art forms and digital media, as well as many genres in between—is even greater than what I previously read about him."
