CURRENT EXHIBITION

ROBERT GUMBINER
SCULPTURE & Events GARDEN

The Robert Gumbiner Sculpture & Events Garden presents an extraordinary exhibition of sculpture from MOLAA’s permanent collection, internationally recognized as the most important collection of contemporary Latin American sculpture in the nation.

In 2006, the Robert Gumbiner Sculpture & Event Garden was inaugurated as a venue to host public and private events and for the display of outdoor sculpture represented in the MOLAA Permanent Collection.

Initiated by the Robert Gumbiner Foundation Collection, the MOLAA Permanent Collection has actively pursued the addition of outdoor sculpture to the collection. The collection has grown due to the generous donations from artists and collectors, as well as by long-term loans. The sculpture garden now presents a permanent display of over 30 abstract and figurative sculptures representing almost one artist per Latin American country.

A wide range of styles and themes in various media of bronze, wood, metal, stainless-steel and polychrome metal reflect the grand diversity of sculptural forms produced by the Latin American artist. Abstract works of note are the bronze sculpture by Peruvian artist Fernando de Szyszlo, the stainless steel sculpture by Mexican artist Leonardo Nierman and the polychrome metal sculpture by Argentinean artist Perez Celis. Figurative works of note are the bronze sculptures by Guatemalan artist Max Leiva, Panamanean artist Guillermo Trujillo and Cuban artist Carlos Luna.
