(Double Sided Settee - A Trio) , 1983

by Scott Burton


Mediums: Granite

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge Street

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Scott Burton’s functional sculptures, which require the spectator’s presence to complete their purpose, transformed the idea of public art. Burton often infused the plain abstract forms of Minimalism with a sense of utility, history, and wit, creating sculptures that could be used as tables and chairs when not on exhibit. His simple forms, cut from smooth and sometimes jagged pieces of granite, can be found with people sitting on them in several cities. Funded with a National Endowment for the Arts, Art in Public Places grant of $22,000 given in 1981 to the Joslyn Art Museum.
