Additional information

A new installation of sculptures by Mexican-born artist Bosco Sodi (b. 1970) places 14 of the artist’s handmade clay spheres at the Harvard Art Museums and marks the first-ever presentation of art on the museums’ outdoor Broadway terrace. Sodi’s practice explores the earth’s elements, marrying age-old traditions of sculpting clay with a contemporary vision of creating simple universal forms that prompt reflection. 

Program continues to run during Winter vacation, February vacation, and April vacation.
