An exceptional sculpture by Ursula von Rydingsvard was recently commissioned to highlight the entrance to the new Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. The nineteen-foot-tall untitled work is von Rydingsvard’s first sculpture made primarily of copper. This video provides a sneak peek of a documentary that will debut in May 2016 about the making of this phenomenal new addition to Princeton University’s campus.
Princeton University boasts one of the most significant public art collections in the United States. A campus art initiative, launched in 2008 to expand the collection with work by living artists, is currently undertaking numerous commissions and loans. This most recent addition to Princeton’s outdoor sculpture collection was installed in November 2015 and will be dedicated in spring 2016 with the new building, designed by architects Tod Williams, Princeton class of 1965, and Billie Tsien.
