011310EyeOnArtsLipskiSMFor most of the twentieth century, sculpture seemed to be the poor relation of modernist art, compared to painting. Its status changed, however, in the 1960s when painting lost its central position, replaced by three-dimensional art. The Weatherspoon’s exhibition “American Art: 1960-Present; Five Decades of Innovation” surveys some of the sculptural movements that have evolved since 1960. The objects on display also reveal some of the major artistic concerns that have preoccupied artists as a whole from the 1960s on.

It will run until March 7.

Visual: “Building Steam #426,” Donald Lipski, 1987.
