Mission Statement

We further the legacy of Harry Bertoia, midcentury modern designer and abstract metal sculptor. His 50+ monumental nationwide sculptures, the iconic modernist furniture, and his amazing sounding sculptures are known worldwide, but now we will connect the Bertoia name with the pieces. We educate students of all ages, loan sculptures for museum exhibitions, and provide resources of all sorts to organizations.

Description

While founded as recently as 2010, we have sponsored numerous university interns, begun the cataloging of Bertoia's entire ouevre, coordinated several major exhibitions, and offered over 50 public lectures about Bertoia. We are seeking a museum home for the 60 sounding sculptures to allow the public to experience the sacred concerts of Sonambient (the artist's own collection of sounding sculptures). We are locally relevant as well as nationally important.
