By Newsroom
An outdoor figurative sculpture that has towered over the Toledo Museum of Art’s main campus landscape for the last six months will now be a part of its permanent collection. The Toledo Blade reports the museum’s board of trustees unanimously approved the acquisition Thursday of Paula, a 23-foot bronze sculpture by Barcelona artist Jaume Plensa, museum director Brian Kennedy confirmed Monday. Kennedy made mention of the purchase during a presentation at Rotary Club of Toledo meeting on Monday. The sculpture, which weighs over 17 tons, was transported to the museum in June in five sections, and installed by a 170-foot high crane, as part of the exhibition called Human Landscape.
