Red Sculpture by Mark di Suvero Makes Steel Beams Appear Almost Weightless

WASHINGTON, DC—You can’t miss the bright red contemporary sculpture sited across from the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum. The structure by Mark di Suvero is composed of steel beams arranged in a delicate triangular configuration, appearing almost weightless.

Di Suvero’s public sculptures are exhibited widely around the world and he recently had a show at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York. A pioneer in the Abstract Expressionist movement, over the years he has founded several organizations committed to supporting new generations of artists.
