Louise Nevelson’s towering steel sculptures recently returned to the downtown plaza that bears her name.
The site-specific sculptures, called “Shadows and Flags,” were reinstalled exactly where Nevelson, a famed New York artist, placed them when the triangular plaza opened in 1977. The installation marks the final phase of a massive renovation of the space.
“The scale and the material is masculine, in a way,” said Maria Nevelson, who started the Louise Nevelson Foundation in Philadelphia. “It’s impressive to see a woman doing that, especially back then.”
