On August 20, 2020, the Parrish opened Field of Dreams, their inaugural sculpture exhibition created to extend the galleries outdoors and activate the Museum’s meadows with work that engages and responds to the Parrish’s architecture and landscape. The exhibition series is part of the Museum’s new Art in the Meadow initiative that enlivens the grounds with performances, projections, and works of art.
Field of Dreams presents work by 10 international, multi-generational artists working in a variety of genres, featuring a suite of four new sculptures by Jaume Plensa (Spanish, born 1955).
Jaume Plensa explores the connection between humanity and nature in his work. In Carlota (oak), Julia (oak), Laura Asia (oak), and Wilsis (oak), 2019—four bronze portraits originally carved from oak—Plensa captures a moment of quiet reflection, evoking silence and stillness in a bustling world.
