Artist: Andreas von Huene, Maine
Lobby, past Miller’s Café and near single elevator, Collins Center for the Arts, Flagstaff Road
Sculpted from red-hued granite, von Huene’s polished work with its dramatic presence is modeled on the countenance of a teenage niece. Well known for having pieces in both private collections and public spaces, von Huene, with a background that includes engineering, often pushes the boundaries of how sculptures are positioned in space. Created as a tall, freestanding stele, MINA is no exception. With the linkage of steles to ancient cultures, the Collins Center — with its focus on the arts and as a home to the Hudson Museum — is an ideal location for MINA. The sculpture is the second piece created through the Littlefield Gallery’s Sculptor-in-Residence Program.
