Trova Sculpture at the York House
Thanks to our friends at Laumeier Sculpture Park, the front lawn of the York House has a new presence — the installation today of the Ernest Trova sculpture, Gox No. 9 1975. The York House is committed to enhancing urban living, and we feel this sculpture from one of our own local artists is a great addition.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Trova was among the most widely acknowledged sculptors working in the United States, resulting in invitations to exhibit in three Whitney Annuals, three Venice Biennales and Documenta 4 (1968) in Kassel, Germany. His works has been exhibited in dozens of major museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
Gox No. 9 was a gift from the artist to Laumeier Sculpture Park, whose mission is to expand the context of contemporary sculpture beyond the traditional confines of a museum, initiate a lifelong process of cultural awareness, enrich lives, and inspire creative thinking by engaging people in experiences of sculpture and nature simultaneously. We are proud to house this sculpture, and become an extension of the Laumeier Sculpture Park mission.
