Artist Don Gummer, Indiana native, subject of show in Massachusetts

Sculptor Don Gummer grew up in Indiana. He attended the John Herron School of Art Indianapolis.

ArtDaily.com has reported that the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams is sponsoring the exhibit.
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Massachusetts presents the exhibit Don Gummer Early Work throughout this summer. Don Gummer's monumental work, Primary Separation, stands outside the T. William Lewis Building on Marshall St. The work was first designed by Gummer in 1969, and has existed up to now only in maquette form: this is its first full-scale realization. In conjunction with the installation of this massive suspended granite boulder, MASS MoCA is featuring an exhibition of Gummer's early maquettes and drawings projects.

Don Gummer is an American sculptor. His early work concentrated on table top and wall-mounted sculpture, but in the mid 1980s he shifted his interest to large free-standing works, often in bronze. In the 1990s he added a variety of other materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum and stained glass. His interest in large outdoor works also led him to an interest in public art
Mr. Gummer's wife is also someone of some note in the performing arts. He is married to Meryl Streep.
