Sculpture Dedication - Elyn Zimmerman: Font

Date: April 23, 2019,
Venue: Ulrich Museum of Art-Wichita State University - 1845 N. Fairmount, Wichita
Sponsor: Ulrich Museum of Art-Wichita State University

The Event:

Font was inspired by an ancient Egyptian altar that featured a round stone sunk into a table. In this interpretation, the round stone of the original altar is replaced by a polished black granite disk. Elyn Zimmerman holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Fine Art from UCLA. Born in Philadelphia, PA, she has lived in New York City since 1977. Since the late 1970s Zimmerman has executed numerous temporary site-specific outdoor sculptural installations for major museums all over the world. Her permanent outdoor sculpture installations are marked by their use of stone and water, as well as their reference to the natural landscape. Zimmerman’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the British Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art as well as several corporate collections.
