Slip Edge Bis

Lila Pell Katzen, 1972.

Cor-ten and brushed stainless steel.

Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Bard in 1978. Orginally displayed at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City then loaned to the University in 1973.

Gifted to the University in 1978.

Born Lila Pell, she was an American sculptor of fluid, large-scale metal abstractions.
Katzen’s philosophical approach to her work encouraged human interaction with the pieces themselves as well as spatial interactions with the site.
