(Any) Body Oddly Propped

Working from their studio in Beacon, New York, Doug and Mike Starn—twin brothers who are among the most powerful sculptors working today—have designed a monumental glass and steel sculpture in response to Princeton’s arboretum-like campus. Featuring eighteen-foot-tall panels of extraordinary color made in a new glass-dyeing technique pioneered in Germany, the work was installed in early September 2015. This important commission joins Princeton’s landmark collection of public art and has been made possible by the exceptional generosity of Shelly Belfer Malkin, Class of 1986, and Anthony E. Malkin, and by the John B. Putnam Jr. Memorial Fund.
