The exhibition highlights the work this great artist created early on in her career between 1958-1967. During this period, Pepper carved out a niche in her own signature sculptural language. In addition to early works, the exhibition includes works from later years: 1970-1980 and is on view through March 9, 2019.

With a title inspired by a poem by Frank O’Hara, this exhibition explores the work produced by Pepper in the 1960s and 1970s. The artist, now 96, is known for producing ebullient forms in metal — a material alluded to in O’Hara’s poem, which harks to Greek mythology and the belief that metals were gifts of the gods.
