Mozart III comes to Wellesley College

snelson

That’s the name of this new outdoor sculpture by Kenneth Snelson located near the Science Center. (Mozart I is at Stanford University, Mozart II is at PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase, NY). The sculpture consists of stainless steel tubes joined by wire cables. Snelson compares building his works to playing music (thus the name of this piece) and describes his work as being concerned “with nature in its primary aspect [and] the patterns of physical forces in three dimensional space.” Took the words right out of our mouths.
