Discover the exciting work and practice of Alyson Shotz, the artist behind AAM’s newest acquisition to the collection, the monumental sculpture Density of Air. Shotz is one of the most innovative and critically acclaimed sculptors working today. A former student of physics, she uses her work to explore light, gravity, perceptions of space, and patterns found in nature. Her large-scale sculptures are in the collections of the Guggenheim, the Brooklyn Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and now, the Academy Art Museum.
The acquisition of Density of Air was made possible through a bequest by Helaine White, and the generous support of Jim and Pam Harris, Elizabeth Hormel, Bette Kenzie, Catherine Collins McCoy, Scott and Courtney Clark Pastrick, MaryLou Armstrong and Joseph Peters, Mary Ann Schindler in Honor of Martin Hughes, Ann and Tom Scully, Tom and Alexa Seip, and Nanny Trippe.
