Don Gummer Sculptures in Downtown Springfield
“You have to start from zero and begin, just start by starting.”
—Don Gummer, Sculptor
Constructing Poetry: Sculptural Work by Don Gummer
Starr Gallery, Alpert Gallery, and the Springfield Museums’ Grounds
May 1, 2021–September 12, 2021 at the Springfield Museums
Sculptures from New York based artist, Don Gummer, will be on display through the week at Pynchon Park. They will then be moved to the Quadrangle at the Springfield Museums through September 12th! Come check them out at the newly renovated park. This exhibit—assembled exclusively for the Springfield Museums—explores work from throughout Gummer’s long and auspicious career and includes a 2021 wall relief sculpture that has never been seen by the public before.
These soaring sculptures will activate the outdoor space in Pynchon Park as well. “We are overjoyed to see so many people using the park to walk from down town to the Museums,” said Kay Simpson, President and CEO of the Museums. “With Don Gummer’s work leading the way up the steps, we hope to see even more people accessing the Quadrangle and all of its sculpture.”
