It was Louise Nevelson's largest work. The multi-part white plywood assemblage dominated the dark paneled lobby of the Atlanta's Georgia Pacific Headquarters Building. Was it the biggest sculpture in Atlanta?
I've been cruising Georgia Pacific Lobby nearly every week for the last few months getting to know it. Today: Louise Nevelson's Dawn Forest is gone. There may be a chunk or two left behind scaffolding and curtains.
The security guard said plans for the lobby were hush, hush.
Dawn Forrest is headed to the Naples Museum of Art where I'm sure it will make quite a scene.
- Here is a better picture of Dawn Forrest, just part of it.
- It's been in the lobby for 22 years.
- You many remember that the Georgia Pacific Building has it's own art gallery, the downtown branch of the High Museum. Quite an optimistic contribution to downtown and a very cool space. I don't know when that petered out.
- The High maintained the Folk Art and Photography Galleries at Georgia Pacific Center until it moved to the Meier building in 2005.
