The Cathedral by Alicia Penalba

Although she lived in Paris for most of her adult life, Penalba's work was deeply influenced by the landscapes of her youth. She is known for her totemic, abstract, vertical sculptures that she named after animals, plant material, and natural forces. Penalba described her work as expressions of spiritualized natural and erotic forms.

Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.

Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
