Synopsis: CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.- The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago, presents today "Big Idea: The Maquettes of Robert Arneson," on view through September 14, 2003. One of America's most original sculptors, Robert Arneson (1930-1992) reinvented American figurative ceramics through the integration of sculpture and painting in his large-scale, often satirical, and even iconoclastic pieces. This is the first exhibition devoted to the terracotta maquettes - small-scale, three-dimensional sketches - that Arneson left in his studio. These pieces, generally less than a foot tall, display the vibrantly glazed surfaces that anticipate the expressive coloration of Arneson's signature large ceramic sculptures. Produced over a quarter of a century beginning in 1964, the maquettes offer a unique view into the sculptor's creative process: some illustrate the origins of compositions for monumental works, while others document ideas not realized ultimately in large scale or provide fascinating examples of early sculptural ideas that underwent significant transformation as they emerged as full-scale pieces. Viewed individually, these small sculptural maquettes achieve their own monumentality despite their intimate scale. As a group, the seventy-five maquettes, related drawings, and large-scale sculptures in the exhibition chronicle Arneson's evolution as an artist and the development of his freewheeling creativity and prodigious imagination. This exhibition was organized by the Palo Alto Art Center in Palo Alto, California.
