Measures, an installation of three hand-painted sculptures by Josephine Halvorson ’07SOA, was on display this fall at the Storm King Art Center, in New York’s Hudson Valley. The piece was a part of the center’s annual Outlook series, which honors one emerging artist by commissioning a site-specific piece. All three sculptures play with scale: a twelve-foot sundial (above), a twenty-four-foot measuring stick camouflaged as a tree, and a thirty-six-foot yellow yardstick that rests horizontally in an open field. “I want these painted sculptures to heighten an individual’s curiosity for the environment and his or her place within it,” Halvorson says.
