To achieve poetry in a piece of sculpture, one must know how to dream, how to draw the dreams, and how to see the interwebbed, interdependent dance of this beautifully colored energy field that we too bluntly call ‘life’ or ‘world.’

Installing Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field took three and half weeks of work and required 10 riggers, two crane drivers and a forklift, as each steel sculpture weighs between 30,000 and 70,000 lbs. In this time-lapse video, you can see the entire monumental exhibition take form in just over two minutes!
