In Lieu, 1975, Welded corten steel
Gift of Mr. & Mrs. Leslie R. Schmier and Mr. & Mrs. Melvin Maxwell Smith In honor of Jane Betsy Welling
This massive sculpture takes its title from the word ‘lieu’ or ‘place’ and signifies a physical reality. No element is square with any other, providing a sense of motion even to this firmly grounded work. Robert Schefman was born in Detroit, lived and worked in New York City for thirteen years and returned to the Detroit area in 1989.
