Can a sculpture the size of a kitchen matchbox have monumental impact? In Micro-Monumental, Kristen Hileman, Assistant Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, has selected 47 tiny sculptures by artists from four regional sculpture groups who sought to answer that question. According to Hileman, this unusual collaboration between Washington Sculptors Group, Baltimore’s Sculptors Inc., Philadelphia Sculptors and New England Sculptors Association is a “microcosm of the world of sculpture in 2006, exemplifying the diversity of artists, their materials and themes in the Northeastern United States.” Washington, DC, a town full of monuments, provides a distinctive context as these artists reinterpret the meaning of monumental with works whose scale belies their presence.
