Dance Cylinder

Ann Arbor, MI

Robert Graham
1980; Bronze; Sculpture
Medical Campus; In front of Taubman Medical Library

Gift of A. Alfred Taubman specifically for the library. Dance Cylinder conveys a “sense of movement, expressed in terms of the human form. Silhouette figures circle the top of the sculpture, almost in carousel fashion, while others seem to emerge gradually from the bronze of the cylinder. The placement of the sculpture allows passersby to view the entire circumference and its subject matter. The gradual revelation of the human body is especially appropriate to the environment of medical learning.”
