Elyn Zimmerman: Sculpture spans four decades of Zimmerman's career and provides an in-depth look at her public and private commissions, which can be found across three continents. Zimmerman began her career as an enigmatic and lonely figure: a painter and photographer who loved nothing better than to shut her studio door and work in isolation. At a certain point in her career, a shift in medium brought her out into the landscape to create large-scale site-specific sculptures inspired by the archaeological sites she visited in the 1970s. Zimmerman is among the small number of a distinguished group of artists and landscape architects who create art for both private and public spaces. Among her public commissions are a memorial fountain for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, New York; the sculpture garden at the Birmingham Museum of Art in Alabama; a fountain and seating area for the AT&T headquarters in Basking Ridge, NJ; the plaza design for the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, DC; a project for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Park and most recently, a park in Tribeca, New York City.
