One big artistic statement

Some call it art.
Others call it five large pieces
of black metal.
Whether or not you under-
stand "Daedalus," the sculpture
that used to stand outside the
entrance of the University of
Michigan Museum of Art, it's the
largest piece of artwork in the
University's collection.
Designed by artist Charles
Ginnever,the wing-shapedsculp-
ture is made of five metal paral-
lelograms. It stands about 11 feet
tall at its highest point.
"The effect is of a serenity
that is at odds with its size," the
University's public art registry
says.
For decades, it was impossible
to miss "Daedalus" while walk-
ing by the corner of South Uni-
versity Avenue and State Street.
The piece, which is built of dura-
ble Cor-Ten steel, stood in front
of the building's entrance until

last fall, when it was moved for
the length of the museum's cur-
rent renovation project.
The five pieces of metal that
make up "Daedalus" were cut
apart and are now tucked away
in a warehouse, said Wayne Kil-
bourn, a security officer for the
UMMA.
"They took it apart with a
blowtorch and moved it into
storage," Kilbourn said.
Kilbourn said he was unable to
disclose the current location of
the piece, because doingso might
threaten its security.
Although it may appear to be
simple, "Daedalus" has a unique
appearance from all sides..
One reason it was originally
placed on the museum's front
lawn is that the location allowed
visitors to walk around the piece
and see it from different angles,
according to the UMMA web-
site.

The name of sculpture refers
to the Greek hero Daedalus, who
in Greek mythology escaped
from King Minos's prison on the
island of Crete by building wings
out of wax.
His name means "artificer" -
making the sculpture a suitable
frontispiece for the University's
art museum.
"Daedalus" was purchased for
an undisclosed price using pri-
vate funds from UMMA support-
ers and a grant from the National
Education Association.
The artwork was bought in
honor of the UMMA's 30th aini-
versary in 1977, two years after
the piece was designed, accord-
ing to the public art registry.
When construction is finished
in 2008, the piece is slated to be
moved to the south side of the
UMMA, according to the Univer-
sity's public art registry.
