Richard Serra

Friday, May 25, 2007

Richard Serra began working with steel as a teenager, on a summer job in a steel mill. Next week in New York, the Museum of Modern Art will unveil a giant retrospective of his career as one of America’s greatest sculptors. Serra’s recent pieces are massive, 12-foot-tall steel walls that curve and lean together to form fascinating spaces you can enter and walk around. Serra walked Kurt through as he was finishing the installation. Produced by Sarah Lilley.
