Mark di Suvero: Mamma Mobius
Location: SLOMA Public Art Platform
Exhibition dates: August 2020 to March 2022 (no longer on view)
The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is thrilled to present Mamma Mobius, an iconic and transcendent sculpture displayed on the Museum’s lawn. This sculpture references the Mobius band, a surface that only has one side and one edge. This work demonstrates di Suvero’s deep commitment to mathematics and science, as he intentionally finds ways to integrate a diverse curiosity into all aspects of his work. This sculpture will be on view at the Museum until February, 2022.
