Forty-five feet high, the red tubes of Alexander Liberman’s steel structure span Locust Walk, creating a focal point for Penn’s residential area. As the title indicates, the artist wanted to convey a feeling of bonding together for a high purpose. Besides being a pioneer in large abstract sculpture, Liberman had a major impact on fashion publishing, serving as art director for Vogue and editorial director of Condé Nast Publications.
