'Bell'

James Colavita

1998 - metal: bronze; wood: cedar

Font Size: AAA

A large work by James Colavita (1949-1996) was cast posthumously in bronze at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture from an original, multi-sectional bell dating from 1994. The individual parts are joined by lengths of metal chain and suspended, alternating open discs and crosspieces, the bottom unit shaped like a bell. Created as a long-lasting tribute to this artist, 'Bell' invites the viewer to ring the bronze work in honor of Colavita’s memory.
