Many Glacier, 2011 by Deborah Butterfield

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. This summer it will join the 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.

You can watch a videotaped interview with the artist discussing this sculpture and her work in general on public TV station WNIT, Experience Michiana. (rebroadcast of May 23 segment)
