New Sculpture at Smith Lab
Description

Stop by Smith Lab and see it's newly erected Roy Lichtenstein sculpture, Modern Head.

Modern Head stands thirty-one feet tall and is made of stainless steel. The sculpture is part of a series Lichtenstein began in the late 1960s that explored the idea of creating images of human figures that look like machines. This concept pervaded the artist's work throughout his career.

Mr. Lichtenstein received his BFA and MFA from The Ohio State University and went on to teach studio classes here from 1946-1951.  Read more about his story and his Foundation's gifts to OSU here.
