Major George Rickey Sculpture Installed at Penn State

The Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State has installed Breaking Column III, an work on loan from a private collection, in the museum’s plaza on the University Park campus.

“We are honored to present a major work by one of the most inventive and influential artists of the last century,” said Palmer Director Erin M. Coe, who led the effort to bring the sculpture to Penn State. “Breaking Column III combines the laws of physics and the aesthetics of abstraction resulting in a sculpture that is never static, but poised somewhere between motion and stillness.” (Art Daily)
