Item Details
American artist Viola Frey’s giant ceramic sculptures of men and women are among the underappreciated wonders of late-20th-century art. Standing 11 feet and higher, wearing business suits and ties and nondescript dresses, they have a spookily imposing physical presence and a clunky, cartoonish ugliness. Located at MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino, they are glazed in strident colors and made in sections that fit together like blocks in a stone wall. Because of their size and their blank or seemingly angry expressions, they may remind you of what it was like to be a child among grown-ups troubled by incomprehensible problems.
