Walking Man -GS

TitleWalking Man
ArtistGeorge Segal
Dimensionsoverall 72 × 36 × 30 inches
LocationOn view at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

George Segal created from a plaster cast formed directly on a real-life model. Segal recast the work in bronze, applied the patina by hand to impart a rich, painterly quality, and placed the figure not on a pedestal, but on a simple fragment of concrete sidewalk near one of the Garden’s tree-lined walkways. Here, passing visitors are drawn to this lonely, human-scaled figure.
