The Diminishing Surface of Winter Slips Away Like Teardrops: Mimi Sturman
Large-scale felt sculpture
Mimi Sturman spent two years working on a large-scale installation of felt sculptures, her largest artwork to date, with a footprint of about 90 square feet, that are now installed in the south side of the City Hall lobby. With much of her work involving narrative, Sturman created a contemporary myth about the changing natural world and the melting of polar ice. Two giant squid wear the coats made for them by the local people, the Inuit. The ice is breaking up around them and their possessions are floating away. The underlying message of concern is balanced by the artwork’s beauty and impressive scale. Read the full press release
The installation is on view Monday through Friday, 9:00 – 5:00, from now until February 28, 2019, when the city’s Public Art Program will host a Closing Celebration from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
