Gallery Reception June 11, 6 — 8 p.m.
Renowned collector and friend of the Garden Beth Rudin deWoody has curated a marvelous collection of sculptures by notable and emerging artists, each offering a unique expression of our Taking Flight theme. President of the Rudin Family Foundation, deWoody is known for her vast art collection — some 10,000 pieces— which she houses and exhibits by appointment at The Bunker Artspace in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is a trustee at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The New School University and the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City; The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles; Design Museum Holon in Israel; and Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. For Taking Flight, deWoody presents five sculptors whose work will be featured throughout BBG’s Gardens from summer through fall: "Bird" by Concha Martinez Barreto, "Roman Standard" by Tracey Emin, “Spotted Owl Mosaic” by Peter Gerakaris, Rachel Owens’ “Groundswell,” a collection of birdbaths by Ian Swordy, and works by Immi Storrs.
