INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Museum of Art says it will unveil for the first time ever in August a monumental sculpture by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein
It announced Monday the piece called Five Brushstrokes will be installed on the mall in front of the museum's main building.
Five Brushstrokes was commissioned in the early 1980s but has never been assembled. It consists of five separate elements ranging between 19 and 40 feet tall with a striking collection of forms and colors. The museum says the sculpture is considered Lichtenstein's most ambitious work in his Brushstroke series.
Museum Director and CEO Charles Venable said it has been working with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation in New York for over a year to bring the work to Indianapolis.
Lichtenstein died in 1997.
