  • "Chaise Gabion," by Celeste Roberge

Crystal Bridges Museum of American art posted on its Facebook page today a picture of men installing a new sculpture, "Chaise Gabion" by Celeste Roberge, against a slope on the grounds of the museum. According to artnet.com, the sculpture is made of waterjet cut stainless steel and 1350 pounds of river rock. When complete, the sculpture should look like the picture above — quite suited to the Ozarks landscape.
