Sculptural objects around town

Hawkins Bolden, “Scarecrow” series. Through February 14 at Shrine (Lower East Side)

Contributed by Sharon Butler / The return of the sculptural object that was highlighted so beautifully in “Greater New York” at MoMA PS1 continues this month in many of the galleries. Some pieces are freestanding, others wall-mounted, and most refer to the sculptural tradition (rather than painting) for meaning. Even Frank Stella, whose tightly-hung solo is on view at the Whitney through Sunday, seems ultimately to have realized that he is more drawn to sculptural form than to painting. With his massive unpainted sculptures, what you see is really what you see.

  1. Great shot of the Stella sculptures; they look way better here than they do in real life. (In person, most of them are very kitschy.)
