Art of the day: Source, Tony Smith

Artist Tony Smith was born on this day, 9/23, in 1912. Often considered a forerunner of minimalism, Smith created monumental sculptures in geometric forms often inspired by nature. 

The CMA's Source, on view in the North Sculpture Garden, possesses a balance between mass and volume, creating a playful energy that spills over into the public space. See it in person on your next visit to the CMA!
