Brookgreen Gardens Commemorates 9/11 with Special Exhibit

Published

on

Brookgreen Gardens will honor the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93 by exhibiting a collection of sculptures by world-renowned sculptor Thomas Schomberg. His exhibition, Memories of 9/11 will debut at Brookgreen 20 years, to the hour, that these attacks occurred and will depict the feelings of horror, anguish and loss that accompanied them.

The exhibition, a series of columns, is a collection of metamorphic figures displaying individual vignettes of emotion. Each sculpture, encompassing one to four figures, is the embodiment of separate and unique emotions. Schomberg, the artist, focused on this series for the last several years and through it has thoroughly explored the human condition as influenced by historical events.

Schomberg is a world-renowned sculptor with a diverse group of collectors including actor, Sylvester Stallone who commissioned Schomberg to create the iconic ROCKY statue for the movie, Rocky III.  His work has shifted from primarily sculpting the athletic figure to more emotional series that represent captivating images of significant American events.

The exhibition will be in the Rosen Galleries at Brookgreen Gardens from September 11th through November 7th, 2021. For more information, visit www.brookgreen.org.
