Untitled Corten

Description

Two symmetrical steel forms joined together in the top center. Constructed of Corten steel, an oxidized steel that develops a rust-looking patina that prevents weather damage. About this piece, the artist remarked, “Its symmetry is a recurring theme in my work, evoking serenity.”
On plaque: “Brian Monaghan Untitled Corten Steel/Funding by Illinois Arts Council & Fel-Pro Manufacturing Corp.”
Brian E. Monaghan owns Central Sculpture Works in Chicago and studied art at the Massachusetts College of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. His large-scale steel sculptures can be seen throughout the Chicago area. The Library owns another piece of Monaghan’s sculpture, “Search.”
