Located on the Peck Family Terrace.
Arturo Herrera was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1959, and lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His work displays vibrant explosions of pattern and color. The design grows out of his use of collages as a medium to juxtapose cut-out shapes that appear continually in flux and without hierarchy which he compares to qualities of dance and music. Herrera received a BA from the University of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
