Centennial Trail users who frequent its stretch passing the grounds of Gonzaga’s Jundt Art Museum likely have noticed the recent addition of a number of large-scale, abstract sculptures dotting the grassy expanse. Thirteen in all, the iconic steel sculptures are the work of David Hayes, a prominent sculptor whose career spanned six decades. Hayes’ work has been showcased at top art institutions including the Guggenheim and MoMA, but this is the first exhibition of his work west of the Rockies. In this exhibit, nature and art come together as one. In addition to the outdoor display, five smaller pieces are featured inside the museum. The exhibit continues through next summer, giving the structures a chance to change in different light shades and seasons.
Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition: David Hayes • Public walk-through (free), Fri, Sept. 19, at noon; art on campus through July 31, 2015 • Jundt Art Museum • 200 E. Desmet • gonzaga.edu/jundt
