Sculptures by David Smith Dance at the Hyde Collection

This summer you may see some large abstract sculptures that helped make artist David Smith famous around the world.  They’re at the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, New York.  The Songs of the Horizon exhibit, however, mostly showcases lesser known and rarely seen pieces inspired by music and dance.

The 20th century artist, whose steel sculptures shine in Boston, New York, London and Jerusalem, spent much of his life in the Adirondack hamlet of Bolton Landing, just 20 miles from where the Hyde is currently celebrating his monumental career.

Spotlight producer Paul Larson spoke with guest curator Dr. Jennifer Field and the museum Chief Executive Officer John Lefner about the special David Smith show.

Programmers at the Hyde scheduled dance workshops and music performances to harmonize with the themes of the art show.

The exhibit Songs of the Horizon: David Smith, Music, and Dance lasts until September 17 at the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls.  Visit for ticket information. 

Spotlight is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park.  Spotlight is also supported by Hill and Hollow Music.
