13DT PinocchioDineA painter, sculptor and graphic artist, Dine’s art often incorporates images of everyday life, such as tools, rope, shoes, neckties and other articles of clothing. Culled from a sculpture exhibition first organized by New York City’s Pace Gallery, the exhibit features works based on Carlo Collodi’s novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio, including sculptures of the title character and a 40-piece print series illustrating Dines’ homage to the classic tale.

The museum’s main galleries will be devoted to several themes – the artist’s Heart and Venus works, Gardening and Carpentry Tool imagery, and recent Pinocchio sculptures. Several major sculptural works will be installed outdoors on the Museum’s expansive 145-acre sculpture park and nature preserve, including The Mountains in the Distance of 1987-88.

This iconic bronze work places the Venus de Milo form on its side, abstracting the vertical of the figure to evoke a horizontal of a landscape.

The museum will screen two films illuminating Dine’s works and artistic processes daily: A Self Portrait on the Walls at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.; and All About Looking at 12 p.m., 1 p.m. & 3:30 p.m. Opens 3.31. Through 7.8.
