Barbara Goldsmith – Spread My Wings
Chicago area sculptor Goldsmith first created this striding figure in clay and then cast it into concrete. Beginning with figurative images, she works to simplify the human form to get to its essence. The gesture combines the heavy earthbound bottom of the figure with the light wing-like upper form.
This sculpture, donated by the artist, is part of the Permanent Collection of the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
