One of Don Gummer’s site-specific constructivist structures will find its home abroad at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. The Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies (FAPE) announced today that it has tasked the American sculptor with creating a new piece of public art for the embassy, to be installed in 2016.
The piece, which Gummer says will be a tall, vertical structure that expresses the “openness and optimism of America,” is the 18th commission from FAPE, which has placed works by artists including Louise Bourgeois, Ellsworth Kelly, Maya Lin, and Joel Shapiro in embassies around the world.
