How many ways can you see one work of art? Each month, we focus on a highlight

Jonathan Borofsky’s sculpture Human Structures (24 Figures Connected), newly unveiled in the David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park, proudly asserts the importance of social connections—or, in the artist’s words, “humanity connecting together to build itself.” Independent curator and always-engaging speaker Patterson Sims will discuss the role of public sculpture in contemporary society—how it brings us together and apart.
