Closing Sunday

Roni Horn at The Nasher Sculpture Center

This weekend marks your last opportunity to see the Roni Horn exhibition at Nasher Sculpture Center. Consisting of eight large-scale glass cylinders in gumdrop hues, the show is the first in the U.S. to focus entirely on Horn’s glass sculptures. (Her body of work also includes painting, collage, and photography.)

Sculpture has been a focus of Horn’s since her time as an MFA student at Yale in the ’70s. But wasn’t until the ’90s she started creating cast glass sculptures of such magnitude. Each is a labor-intensive project, taking three to four months to complete. Their size, opacity, and seemingly luminescent glow make these sculptures a presence to encounter. A force with gravitational pull. A study of space, weight, and form—with a spirit that’s a bit whimsical.

The Details: Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street. Exhibition closes August 20.
