Beginning the end of June, the Cleveland Museum of Art will exhibit a monumental work by British artist Anish Kapoor, C-Curve, a stainless steel sculpture, in the Donna and Stewart Kohl Sculpture Garden.
The sculpture comprises a curved wall of reflective steel in the shape of the letter C. The outer side of the piece functions as a typical mirror, reflecting the museum's architecture. On the inner side, the reflections are inverted: viewers, clouds, cars and bikers all pass across the silver screen in an upside-down version of real life.
Placed toward the north end of the sculpture garden, C-Curve is a one-year loan from a private collector.
"Anish Kapoor is one of today's most important and influential contemporary sculptors," said William M. Griswold, director of the Cleveland Museum of Art. "I am extremely grateful for the generous loan of C-Curve, which will enliven the museum's exterior north space and enthrall passers-by."
