Balance in Nature: Sculptures by Jerzy Jotka Kędziora

— Running from June 15th through October 13th —


For over half a century the life-sized public sculptures by Polish artist Jerzy Jotka Kędziora have expressed his firm conviction that “Art must get out of museums and reach the people.” Old Westbury Gardens, in association with the Art & Balance Foundation of Poland, is pleased to present the gardens-wide exhibition, Balance in Nature! Sculptures by Jerzy Jotka Kędziora. This exhibit features works from a dozen or so years, including Kędziora’s world-acclaimed series of gravity-defying sculptures. Placed between the earth and sky, the sculptures direct the viewer’s sight and imagination to the higher strata of the surrounding spaces and dreams. —Jerzy Jotka Kędziora.
