A Whole New O

In the month of January, the Ogden Museum has opened five new shows with one still to come. So, in a way, we are offering a whole new O to the public. Steve Kline's sculpture, Running Shadows, Flow Encircled Bits, is a recent acquisition of the Ogden, another whole new O. The work was originally installed in the 1984 World's Fair, and has been generously gifted to the Ogden by Michael Brown and Linda Green of New Orleans. During Katrina, the skylights of the studio it was stored in were lost, and the work suffered greatly from the elements. Steve has diligently restored the ten foot wooden sculpture. The photos below show the installation of the sculpture, giving a new meaning to our well worn phrase, "Support the O." Top photos by Bradley Sumrall. Installation shots by David Houston.
