Laumeier Sculpture Park Completes $200,000 Conservation Project

ST. LOUIS – Laumeier Sculpture Park announced the completion of a $200,000 conservation project for Donald Judd’s “Untitled,” 1984, located on the south lawn at Laumeier.

The two-year conservation project was made possible by a 2012 Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for $100,000, with a 1:1 match by Laumeier.

Donald Judd’s “Untitled,” 1984, consists of three open-ended cubes made of concrete panels, placed in a row for the viewer to look through like a tunnel.

An additional concrete panel is placed vertically inside each cube at varying angles, calculated to change the viewer’s perception when looking through them.

The square form appears frequently in Judd’s work and is considered a prime example of the conceptual interests of the Minimalist movement.
