The exhibition Harry Bertoia: Free Interpretations celebrates the relocation of the artist’s 1967 sculpture Free Interpretation of Plant Forms to Woodmere’s grounds. For over a decade, the lyrically unfolding work, commissioned by the City of Philadelphia and originally installed at the Civic Center in West Philadelphia, has been in storage. Now, having undergone conservation treatment and in coordination with Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy, Free Interpretation of Plant Forms becomes a most welcome addition to Woodmere’s grounds and regains its rightful place among the city’s public art.
