http://JaneManus.com http://www.morselife.org/news/press-releases/2014/20140311.php Jane Manus, the internationally-renowned American artist known for her large-scale, bold geometric sculptures, installed her newest work, "Skyward," on the Marilyn & Stanley M. Katz Seniors Campus of MorseLife, 4847 Fred Gladstone Drive in West Palm Beach, Florida. "Skyward" was commissioned by the Krakoff Family as a gift for the MorseLife campus. Ms. Manus' sculpture is located near the entrance of the Sondra & David S. Mack Pavilion, MorseLife's newly-constructed Short-Term Rehabilitation Center. Since the 1970's, Manus has achieved significant success and prominence in the art world with her abstract works. She began developing her geometric sculptures when she was a young artist at the Art Institute of Boston and learned to weld metal into sculpture. Considered a "breakthrough" in her long career, her vibrant works, made exclusively of pieces of metal, integrate disparate elements of geometry, transforming the spaces they inhabit. "With 'Skyward,' I wanted to create a monumental sculpture that one could walk through and see through from all angles - a three dimensional work," Ms. Manus said. "I wanted it to be interactive, something that viewers would easily touch and experience." Film by http://StevenMichaelKing.com
