Work by American artist Nancy Rubins.
Weatherspoon Art Museum

American artist Nancy Rubins is best known for her enormous sculptures which have been commissioned and exhibited all across the country. They’re made out of things like boats, airplane parts, and hot water heaters. But Rubins transforms these materials into elegant and even delicate-looking objects of incredible beauty. You’ll find them on display alongside her captivating graphite drawings at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro. Curator of Exhibitions Xandra Eden and Weatherspoon Director Nancy Doll spoke with David Ford about Nancy Rubins: Drawing, Sculpture, Studies.
