Platforms: Washington Sculpture Group
Platforms is an outdoor sculpture exhibition presented in the Myrtle Berlin Katzen Sculpture Garden curated by Jeff Spaulding and featuring the work of Damian Yanessa, Patrick McGowen, Kate Kauffman, Steven Jones, Linda Hesh, Robert Bickey, Greg Braun, and M Frank. In his curator statement, Spaulding poses the following: “Although the function of a platform, broadly defined, is to provide support and focus, its value lies in what is supported. What is now possible? This exhibition is meant to address what that might be.”
