Description: Emergence

The twin forms of Nancy Jurs’ ceramic sculpture Emergence flank the Gallery’s main entrance.  Hand-built, the clay pedestals and torso-like forms give the appearance of having been weathered over a century.  Like many other works in the Centennial Sculpture Park, Emergence rewards viewing from many angles and in many weather conditions—color, texture and patina drawing the eye in new ways with each new look.
