Sheldon Acquisition Trust and friends of the Sheldon Memorial Art GalleryOld Glory by Mark Di Suvero Mark Di SuveroMark Di Suvero uses industrial materials, including I-beams, to create sculptures that invite viewer interaction.

Di Suvero seeks to make space come alive, and describes his work as “painting in three dimensions with the crane as my paintbrush.” American 1933Shanghai, China
