Frank Stella on the Roof of the Met

On view, in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, is an installation of recent works in stainless steel and carbon fiber by the prolific American artist Frank Stella (b. 1936). Since his first showings in New York in the late 1950s, Stella has occupied a prominent place among leading artists and has continued to expand the boundaries of what abstract painting and sculpture can be. This exhibition, was in tandem with Frank Stella: Painting into Architecture, that close on July 29, marks the artist’s first solo presentation at the Metropolitan. It is set in the most dramatic outdoor space for sculpture in New York City: The Roof Garden, which offers spectacular views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.The work will be on view until October 28, 2007 (weather permitting).

The exhibition is made possible by Bloomberg. Additional support is provided by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky.
