DAM Introduces Landmark Sculpture

, FYI

The Delaware Art Museum has acquired a major piece of artwork —Chakaia Booker’s “One Way”—the first piece by an African American artist to be represented in the Museum’s sculpture garden. Created in 2008 by Booker, the sculpture was made to express the diversity, mobility, and hope that she feels. The piece is made from recycled tires and stainless steel, and is shaped in interconnecting circles, to symbolize “movement and perceptual cycles,” according to Booker, who has been a part of many group exhibitions and whose artwork is featured in several museums.

The sculpture is on display until Jan. 27.
