The Storm King Art Center today announced a major exhibition of Mark di Suvero’s work that will open on Governors Island on May 27.

The exhibition, Mark di Suvero at Governors Island: Presented by Storm King Art Center comprises roughly a dozen works that will be sited around the Island.

The artist and his team are hard at work installing a sculpture at Picnic Point

The exhibit is curated by Storm King Director and Curator David Collens and is the largest outdoor presentation of di Suvero’s sculpture to be shown in New York City since the 1970s. With loans from public and private collections—including a number of sculptures from Storm King’s own celebrated installation of the artist’s work—as well as several new works that have never been on public view, it is a centerpiece of the Island’s 2011 season.

The exhibition is free and is open every day that the Island is open to the public. A full list of the 2011 schedule for the Island will be posted in the next week and opening day is just three weeks from today!
