Deborah Butterfield (American. b. 1949), Many Glacier, 2011, unique cast bronze with patina. Acquired with funds provided by the Humana Foundation Endowment for American Art, 2013.017
Come see the new addition to our growing "herd" of Deborah Butterfield horses. This recumbent horse will "bed down" in the entrance atrium during the fall and winter. Next spring it will join the standing Butterfield horse sculpture currently on view in the Notre Dame Sculpture Park.
Both sculptures by Butterfield are arrangements of wooden debris cast in bronze and welded together. The surface of each cast piece is chemically patinated to reproduce the colors of the original wood.
