Donald Judd
Corten steel. 7 1/3' h. x 7 1/3' w. x 14 2/3' d.

In his sculpture Judd has championed a maximum clarity in form and material. He has rejected metaphysical and metaphoric speculations and has tried to emphasize what art can express as true. To him, that truth was accumulated through concrete experiences and perceptual issues. With his ongoing series of boxes, he has established the versatility of such a simple shape. In his work for Western, the exterior sides, as expected, are perpendicular to the open ends; however, the interior panels are on the diagonal, thereby creating an unusual sense of space. He sited the work on the lawn so that his scuplture frames at one end Old Main on the lawn and in the distance the Canadian Coastal Range.
