Robert Indiana: ONE through ZERO – On view through November 30, 2017

Visit the Glass House to see the exhibition Robert Indiana: ONE through ZERO, on view through November 30th. We recommend visiting on a self-guided tour day for best access to this installation. Join us for self-guided tours in July on Sunday, July 16 or Sunday July 30. Limited tickets – reserve today!

Robert Indiana’s ONE through ZERO is comprised of ten 6-foot-high COR-TEN steel sculptures that were conceived in 1980 and executed in 2003. Visitors will find these monumental works located in a field just to the south of the Glass House itself, where they have been placed to accentuate the edge of the hill that separates the house from the pond and pavilion below. Taking advantage of the changes of level in the landscape and the visual connections with many highlights of the property, the installation conjoins Philip Johnson and Robert Indiana’s visionary approach to industrial materials, proportion, form and the understanding of space.

The exhibition has been made possible through generous support from the Morgan Art Foundation and the Salama-Caro family.
