Four Open Rectangles
George Rickey, 1907-2002, American
Rickey is one of two major 20th century sculptors for whom movement was a central theme; the other, Alexander Calder, was Rickey's inspiration. With skilled engineering and precision-placed bearing, this sculpture seems to move effortlessly with even the slighted breeze. Rickey often told stories about how his WWII work in aircraft and gunnery systems led his move from painting to kinetic sculpture.
Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.
Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
