"Job" Installed at Herron

Job (2005) by artist Judith Shea (b. 1948) will be permanently installed at Herron School of Art and Design at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis this month, reports the IUPUI News Bureau.

The 75" x 38" x 30" bronze sculpture will be on display in the Allen Whitehill Clowes Pavilion at Herron's main entrance on New York Street.

Shea's early "clothing" work was in the Whitney Biennial in 1981. Two years later she began casting them into iron and bronze directly from cloth, allowing the work to change from intimate to monumental. Shea's work is in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, and The National Gallery. Awards include The Rome Prize Fellowship, the Saint-Gaudens Fellowship, and two NEA fellowships for Sculpture.
