Greensboro, NC – A sculpture by the renowned late local artist Andy Dunnill has found a new home in Greensboro. Entitled FALL, the piece was formerly located in front of the Taylor Theatre on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). The sculpture was a gift from Jane and Richard Levy to the Public Art Endowment, an initiative of The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro. In turn, the Endowment gifted the sculpture to the City of Greensboro and installed the work on the sidewalk adjacent to the Government Plaza on Greene Street. FALL was previously shown in Chicago at the Navy Pier Exhibition and at Socrates Park in New York City.
The sculpture is described as a quintessential work of the artist, showing bold, imposing forms with figurative overtones. Dunnill was a popular member of the sculpture faculty at UNCG. A native of London, he was an accomplished sculptor and artist. He died in 2016.
