LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK / ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY THROUGH ART AND NATURE
Laumeier Sculpture Park is proud to announce the acquisition and conservation of Jene Highstein’s Old Temple, 1991. Gifted by the Jene Highstein Estate, this acquisition highlights our organization’s ongoing commitment to collecting and caring for artworks for the benefit of our visitors—past, present and future. Highstein’s Old Temple, 1991, is a cylindrical form made from western cedar, reminiscent of a primordial totem. Juxtaposed between natural associations and abstract shapes, Highstein’s influences range from stone-age tools and ceremonial objects to ancient deities.
Jene Highstein: Laumeier and Legacy, a book examining Highstein’s oeuvre and his offerings in Laumeier’s collection.
