Beverly Pepper
Manhattan Sentinels,1996
The sculpture group Manhattan Sentinels includes four cast-iron totemic forms that range in size from 36 to 39 feet and incorporate grass and seating areas on two plazas flanking the Federal Office Building at 26 Federal Plaza. These sculptures stand in active dialogue with our urban spaces. In the past, forms such as these served as monuments to civic pride or spiritual devotion. Today they also celebrate human aspirations and continuity, and invite us to reflect on shared meanings and experiences.
Beverly Pepper was born in New York City where she studied at Pratt Institute and the Art Students League. She was trained with Fernand Leger and at the Grande Chaumiere with Andre Lhote in Paris, France. Her works are represented in major museums and public and private collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; Florence Museum of Art, Italy; and the Barcelona Museum of Modern Art, Spain.
