Press Release

Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present Sculpture in the Garden, an exhibition of outdoor works on temporary view in the Berggruen’s St. Helena garden. The exhibition brings together work by artists whom Berggruen Gallery has a long history of exhibitingcelebrating their work and the rich history of outdoor sculpture in the Bay Area. Among the exhibition highlights will be Mark di Suvero’s large-scale work Zydeco and garden-scale work Viva!, as well as George Rickey’s monumental, eighteen foot tall stainless steel sculpture Double L Excentric Gyratory - Pond. Installed throughout the garden, the works provide visitors with a chance to encounter the sculptures as they were designed to be viewed, in a natural outdoor setting that allows them to be seen from multiple angles and perspectives. Sculpture in the Garden continues Berggruen Gallery's tradition of mounting large-scale outdoor sculpture exhibitions in partnership with many artists, beginning in 1983 with an installation of Mark di Suvero's work at the then newly completed Esprit Park at Minnesota and 19th Streets in San Francisco through the first of five collaborations of public sculpture exhibitions with John and Gretchen's friends Susie and Doug Tompkins, cofounders of Esprit Décor.
