"A Toast to Modernism"
Standing about 10 feet high, Gino Miles' bronze sculpture, "Skyward", will offer a modern art twist to the experiences of guests visiting the Conrad Indianapolis this fall.
The 450 pound sculpture - part of Long-Sharp Gallery/ModernMasters Fine Art owner Rhonda Long-Sharp's newest lobby exhibition will greet visitors with multiple other sculptures. Miles, the featured artist, is a 60-year-old New Mexican artist who is inspired by the shapes he finds in the natural landscape. His large-scale works are installed across the United States including at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science (Evansville, Indiana); Spencer Museum at University of Kansas; Disney Corporate Headquarters; the cities of Cerritos and Napa, California (where his "Grape Crusher" sculpture is a National landmark); the City of Edmond, Oklahoma and Western Kentucky University (Bowling Green, Kentucky), as well as in multiple private collections.
"A Toast to Modernism", will also include a total of seven works on paper by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Joan Miro (1893-1983) and Henry Moore (1898-1986).
