For more than 25 years, iconoclastic sculptor Steve Tobin has transformed the wonders of nature into monumental sculptures in bronze, steel, glass and ceramics. His unique, memorable and often allegorical sculptures capture both the nature we see and the meanings and implications we may have overlooked. Tobin gained international acclaim in 2004 with the installation of his transcendent Trinity Root near Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan, the first and only art memorial near the 9/11 site.

The artist’s mesmerizing, nature-based sculptures challenge us to reconsider what we know about art and nature. They resonate with the fine art world as well as with children and the general public.

This remarkable retrospective will include highlights from throughout Tobin’s career – including his blown-glass Cocoons, Bone sculptures, Exploded Clay, Torsos and signature Roots – along with his most recent Steelroots series. –
