Beverly Pepper in Union Square Park 

Oct 22 2015 - May 31 2016

Press Release

In special recognition of Beverly Pepper’s 93rd birthday, the Directors of Marlborough Gallery, NYC Parks and the Union Square Partnership are pleased to announce that the monumental sculpture My Circle, 2008, will be exhibited at the Union Square Triangle beginning October 22, 2015 through the end of May 2016.

My Circle continues the artist’s contemplation of time, materiality and place, and is part of Curvae, her series of curved forms. By using Cor-Ten steel, a corrosion-resistant material that naturally and quickly develops a weathered-looking patina, Pepper is able to speed up the oxidation process, and in so doing suggest the concept of elapsed time through the sculpture’s skin of rust.
