Sam Moyer: Doors for Doris
Public Art Fund Talks are presented in partnership with The Cooper Union.

Sam Moyer’s virtual conversation with Public Art Fund Curator Daniel S. Palmer on October 14 accompanies her new Public Art Fund commission Doors for Doris. This massive three-part sculpture marks the threshold between the open oasis of Central Park and the bustling built environment of Midtown Manhattan, with a title that pays homage to Public Art Fund founder, Doris C. Freedman (1928-1981).

Moyer is known for her distinctive language of abstraction, drawing inspiration from architectural spaces and natural materials. This conversation will address her sculptural practice, as well as offer insight into the process of creating Doors for Doris. This new commission is her most ambitious artwork to date, uniting stones from all over the world with Bluestone, a material that is native to New York. It encourages reflection upon the origin, economy, and utility of its different stones and materials, serving as a metaphor for New York City's social and built environments.
