Five Big Things

Five Big Things

Five large artworks from the City’s Civic Collection. Even though they are part of the "portable" collection, these pieces might have more in common with permanently sited art. Most of these pieces require a long uninterrupted wall and several need plenty of floor space – increasingly rare commodities in our city buildings. July 9 - September 28, 2018.
