8/28: The Sculpture of David E. Davis

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2009 at 2:14 PM

You can find David Davis’ large, abstract sculptures all over town — from a work that resembles a large basketball balanced on a domino sitting on the front lawn of the Beck Center to “Bridge to Knowledge,” a huge piece at the Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Beachwood branch that looks a little like folded paper. Davis’ familiarity with large public sculptures landed him the job of overseeing the installation of Isamu Noguchi’s “Portal” at the Justice Center. Cleveland owes the late sculptor a debt of gratitude — not only for these pieces, but also for founding the Sculpture Center, which marks its 20th anniversary with an exhibit of his smaller works. The Sculpture of David E. Davis: Celebrating the 20 Year Legacy opens with a reception from 5:30-8 p.m. The exhibit runs through October 24, at the Sculpture Center (1834 E. 123rd St., 216.229.6527). It’s free. — Michael Gill
