Description of Pictures: Harp of David #1 by Dina Wind
July 1, 2018 through July 1, 2021
Dina Wind, (1938- 2014) was born in Israel, but spent her formative years as an artist in Philadelphia. She began her study as a painter, but she became immersed in the process of welding scrap steel into sophisticated and challenging abstract spatial compositions of various scales. She left a strong legacy of works in her studio and in numerous public and private collections over her nearly 30 years as a sculptor.
Less than five years after her passing, her work has been further embraced by the Woodmere Art Museum and Grounds For Sculpture, two museums which have commissioned monumental enlargements of Wind’s steel works for their respective collections. In partnership with the Dina Wind Estate and The Seward Johnson Atelier, a 26’ enlargement of Wind’s Harp of David #1 was created and installed at GFS.

Wikipedia Description: Grounds For Sculpture
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) is a 42-acre (170,000 m2) sculpture park and museum located in Hamilton, NJ, United States, on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded in 1992 by John Seward Johnson II, the venue is dedicated to promoting an understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture by organizing exhibitions, publishing catalogues, and offering a variety of educational programs and special community events.
In July 2000, GFS became a nonprofit organization open to the public. Operation revenues come from visitors, art patrons, donations, and grants. GFS maintains an ever changing collection of sculptures, with works by Seward Johnson and other artists.
