Powerful Figures features sculptures from disparate cultures around the world and across time that embody the dual concepts of power, as both a fundamental social dynamic and part of our innate wiring to respond to figures and faces. Curved niches encourage visitors to engage with each artwork, decluttering the field of view and focusing attention. Poetically concise labels heighten the emotional tenor of the experience. Located in the Louise du Pont Crowninshield Gallery.
