Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape
May 22-Nov 1, 2015
Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape is the artist’s largest exhibition to date in the United States. His best-known U.S. works include Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millennium Park, and Echo, formerly on view in Madison Square Park in New York, now permanently sited at Olympic Sculpture Park at the Seattle Museum of Art.
Jaume Plensa creates sculptures and installations that unify individuals through connections of spirituality, the body, and collective memory. Literature, psychology, biology, language, and history have remained key guiding elements throughout Plensa’s career. Using a wide range of materials—including steel, cast iron, resin, paraffi n wax, glass, light, water, and sound—Plensa lends physical weight and volume to components of the human condition and the ephemeral.
On select days of the week, Cheekwood will be open in the evening and each sculpture will be lit for a completely different experience.
Tuesday – Sunday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
