Show Closing: Andrew Leicester, Cincinnati Gateway Revisited

This exhibit will be closing Aug. 25, 2019 at the Cincinnati Arts Association:

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Cincinnati Gateway sculpture created as the entry to Cincinnati’s Bicentennial Commons in 1988, award-winning artist and sculptor Andrew Leicester (Minneapolis, MN) returns to create a new work that revisits the once controversial public sculpture that went on to launch a million flying pigs.

Leicester’s new installation will be complemented by photo documentation of the Gateway project along with earlier and later public projects (both completed and unrealized) that he proposed in the United States and abroad.

Noted art historian Erika Doss, who has written extensively about public sculpture and its unique presence, will present a lecture addressing Leicester and other artists’ approaches to public art and public space.
