The Everson Museum provides a unique context for displaying monumentally sized artwork. With four cantilevered galleries revolving around a cavernous central atrium, the building itself is considered to be a colossal work of sculpture. This characteristic, coupled with the galleries’ soaring ceilings and the two-story sculpture court, creates spaces ideally suited for the acquisition and exhibition of largescale work. Monumental features six artists from the Everson’s collection—John de Andrea, Harmony Hammond, Sadashi Inuzuka, Sol LeWitt, Dennis Oppenheim, and Arnie Zimmerman—whose largescale sculptures take full advantage of the expansive gallery space the Everson has to offer.
