View of Tony Tasset’s Judy’s Hand Pavilion at Tob’ys Plaza, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, 2018.
by

Travis Diehl

Ask Cincinnati native Tony Tasset for a sculpture and you’ll get anything from a giant eyeball to a depressed Paul Bunyan to a steel-and-resin rainbow. Invited to the inaugural FRONT International Triennial in Cleveland, Ohio, he made Judy’s Hand Pavilion (2018), a mammoth silver-colored fiberglass hand modeled on that of... continue reading
