Steve Tobin: Southern Roots
February 20 - September 4 2016
(Indoor exhibition ends on May 29)
In 2016, Cheekwood will present the work of internationally-acclaimed artist, Steve Tobin. This exhibition Steve Tobin: Southern Roots will not only be on view in the Museum of Art, but it will also continue throughout Cheekwood’s vast landscape. Five outdoor areas will host Tobin’s monumental work, most notably his “Steel Root” sculptures. While in the Museum, visitors will have the opportunity to experience Southern Roots in the second floor gallery spaces, each providing an intimate setting to observe a particular style and medium from the artist’s vast portfolio of work. In addition to steel and bronze, Tobin incorporates natural elements such as wood, glass, and ceramics into his beautiful, mysterious, and dramatic pieces of sculpture. Tobin’s newest work, using wood from fallen trees in Costa Rica, has never before been exhibited, and will be a highlight of the Steve Tobin: Southern Roots exhibition.
