Helmholtz: The Icon Returns

July 26 - October 12, 2014
 
"Helmholtz," by Mark di Suvero, before the June 16, 2013 accident
After nearly 30 years in Fort Wayne's Freimann Square, a drunk driver crashed into the massive sculpture Helmholtz on June 16, 2013, severely twisting the iconic orange steel I-beams, rendering the once majestic "bull" lifeless without major repairs made by Mark di Suvero himself. After more than a year of repairs, the Fort Wayne public sculpture Helmholtz will return to its location in the early Fall of 2014. This exhibition chronicles the sculpture's inception, creation, tragic fall, and victorious return to glory in Fort Wayne.

Donald Martiny: Freeing the Gesture

May 24 - August 24, 2014
 
In the 1950s, artists like Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline elevated the gesture to the position of the protagonist in abstract expressionism. In the 21st century, Donald Martiny advances that idea considerably further by freeing the gesture of gestural abstraction from the substrate which, heretofore, provided the context that brought gesture to life.
