Starn Sculpture

Sculptors Create Grand Entrance to Art Museum

August 2nd, 2016 / Development Com...

Before visitors step inside Princeton’s world-class art museum, they are greeted by a monumental glass and steel sculpture, a creative bridge from the campus’s arboretum-like setting to the visual treasures inside. Noted artists Doug and Mike Starn, twin brothers whose work has been exhibited at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Macro Museum in Rome, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, among other public and private collections, designed (Any) Body Oddly Propped especially for the museum’s front lawn. The commissioned work features eighteen-foot-tall panels of color made in a new glass-dyeing technique pioneered in Germany.

The contemporary landmark was made possible in part by the generosity of painter and conservationist Shelly Belfer Malkin ’86 and Anthony E. Malkin.
